The children had their first experience making things with real food. We were a bit unsure how it was going to go; eating, mouthing, drool, boogers, but then… The children were really excited about this new opportunity to explore food in a different way. They helped add each ingredient and even got a little taste! All of the elements provided a sensory experience.
Sound: the food processor
Taste: nibble here & there
Feel: each ingredient in their little hands
Smell: the aroma of fresh garlic and cumin.
The added benefit of eating hummus that they created themselves is always a very rewarding experience as well!
