Kitchen time

Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly- tasty fruit! Let’s walk to the kitchen! Hold the baby gently under his arms and tenderly swing/walk/carry him to the kitchen. Make the walk fun. Sing( Walking ,walking ,walking walking seems so easy now) to any simple tune….say here we are. This is our kitchen where we can see food and drinks, learn to cook, and eat Yummy food! We can learn nutrition too! Now we are going to open the fridge and get some special green herbs! Reach out and bring some fresh green basil. Say look, basil. Basil, this is basil. It is a kind of herb that grows in light. Its leaves are green. Green basil! Look at the color. It is green. The basil is leafy green, highly aromatic .It has robust licorice flavor. This herb is very rich in “vitamin A” that has antioxidant properties and essential for vision. It also contains a good amount of minerals. Finally it is an excellent source of vitamin ‘K’ that is absolutely essential to building our bones and preventing heart disease. So basil is good for our eyes, and heart, and strengthen our bones {while talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the fresh leaves, put it from one hand to another, make it accessible and touchable for the baby) you will realize that he is happy to touch these delicate leaves he may even try to catch some leaves between his fingers. Take the basil and touch the baby’s face with it. Say: Basil feels soft and slick. Touch the nose with basil and say: nose, Touch the other parts of the face commenting on them: head, forehead, brows, eyes, hands, fingers, chest, tummy, waist, legs, feet. Put the baby in the seat and put a basil stem in his hand and with your help approach the stem to his nose. Say: Smell it now, Mmm! The basil smells fresh! Let’s touch some stems now, put some stems in front of him and let him mix and play with them Say: they feel wet and smooth. People cut fine basil and toss on anything they cook they also use it in salads and pasta. Guide him by playing and mixing the stems together. Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested. Provide the rest time.
