The babies have enjoyed messy (and tasty!) sensory fun exploring food. They made chocolate cupcakes and sensory bottles, filled with pasta shapes, rice and oats.
The children loved their new bottles so much that they took them outside to explore them some more in the Baby corner of the garden. They enjoyed filling and emptying the bottles into the metal tray with their carers supporting them. Of course the chocolate cakes went down a treat too!
