Fruit Lollies

The Ladybirds went to the local shops to buy some exotic fruit. 

They viewed the fruit isles and selected various exotic fruits such as dragon fruit, mango and papaya. 

When they returned to nursery they used fine and gross motor skills to manipulate knives to chop up the fruit. 

The fruit was cut into smaller pieces. 

Once this was done the children added the fruit pieces to the lolly moulds. 

Then they used small jugs to pour in juice to fill the moulds. 

Pouring carefully to minimise spill. 

The lollies were put in the freezer and once frozen the children enjoyed the lollies. 

They talked about the change to fruit. 

Commenting that it was harder and cold.
