Fire Lighting and Cooking

It has been very cold this week, but our Parent and Toddler group have been all wrapped up warm and ready for adventures outside.

Each week the children are becoming more confident at being safe around the fire. They are understanding what is needed to make fire and this week they got the chance to create their own sparks using the fire steel.

It takes a lot of concentration, patience and resilience to create sparks and then use the sparks to light the cotton wool (even for adults). Well done!

The children enjoyed cooking something new this week. They used ice-cream cones and filled them with delicious treats including chocolate chips, marshmallows and banana, before putting them on the fire to melt and get all gooey! This was another opportunity to talk to the children about the changes that are happening to the food as it cooks. We enjoyed watching how runny the chocolate got.
