Dandelion Jam

the Ladybirds went to the park to collect dandelions. 

They collected as many as possible to use to make dandelion jam. 

The children looked at pictures of dandelions and spotted them in the grass. 

They used gross motor skills to pull them out for collection. 

On return to nursery they followed the recipe to make dandelion jam with Lana our chef. 

The children weighed and measured the ingredients. 

They mixed them together and watched first hand as it was cooked on the table top pan.

They also used the bread maker to make bread to go with the jam. 

Seeing that technology can be used for a purpose. 

As well as learning life skills. 

Everyone tasted the bread and dandelion jam.
