The babies have been making their very own pizzas

In the Baby Room we have been making our very own pizzas! The adults supported the children to mix together the ingredients to make their very own dough. We gave them chance to explore the texture using their hands to mix and knead the dough. We encouraged turn taking by supporting the babies to wait for their turn. Once the dough was ready, we encouraged the babies to choose the toppings they wanted to add to their own pizza, supporting their independence and exploration of tastes and textures. The adults repeated descriptive words during the activity to reinforce and encourage the children’s language development.
