Each week we have a sensory/messy food play session. Food is a fantastic sensory resource as it allows us exploration of different textures, colours, smells, sounds and of course, where appropriate, taste. Our food play can be linked to our class theme, seasonal or something just a bit different!
As aprt of our work on 'We're going on a polar bear hunt' we explored cold ice cream, made a snow storm with icing sugar and had a snow ball fight with marshmallows.
During our autumn term we explored some edible fireworks (rice krispies, yogurt, food colouring) and felt the different textures of a pumpkin.
