Chinese New Year

Preschool set the role play area up as a Chinese restaurant and went out for lunch for Chinese New Year. They practised using chopsticks picking up pompoms.

Older Toddlers practised their knife cutting skills, chopping vegetables for homemade spring rolls. They then enjoyed them as a delicious healthy snack.
