In the food preparation area this week we had carrot peeling. The children chose a carrot from the bowl and took the tray to a table. They peeled the carrot away from their body. Once the carrot was peeled, they cut off the ends with a dull knife. This was interesting as the ends tend to pop off and may land on the ground. We have had many enthusiastic carrot eaters and some who prefer to ask others, “Would you like a carrot?” and share with their friends.
Another practical life skill!
