Kitchen time

Say : Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for some smelly-tasty orange vegetables! Let’s walk to the kitchen! Make the walk fun .Sing ((There are many colored vegetables and fruits-They are good for you. Carrots are orange, I'll eat a few, if I find other vegetables, I'll eat them too) while walking with him, say: here we are. This is our kitchen where we will search for a carrot and make a surprising activity!! Open the fridge and bring a “carrot”! Put the baby in the seat and approach the seat next to the kitchen table. Hold up the carrot and say:” Orange!” Show it to the baby and say: “Orange! Carrot is orange. It’s an orange carrot.” Take blue play dough from the kitchen drawer, hold it up and say:” Blue!” Show it to the baby and say: “Blue! This play dough is blue. It’s blue play dough!”. “Oops! I forgot to introduce this lovely soft colored substance similar to clay that we use for making models or shapes. The malleable properties of play dough make it fun for investigation and exploration as well as secretly building up strength in all the tiny hand muscles and tendons, making them ready for pencil and scissor control later on. It can be squashed, squeezed, rolled, flattened, chopped, cut, scored, raked, punctured, poked and shredded. Give the baby the play dough and observe how happy he becomes when he touches and starts working with it. You will find that it’s a great way to introduce” Squish!! Squeeze!! Sticky!” to the little one. Take the play dough from the baby’s hands, and say: Look at me. We are going to make carrot dough! Hold up the carrot and say: This is an orange carrot. Together we will make a blue carrot using this blue dough! Let’s start..Look at my hands. Great! First, we will roll a large ball using both hands!!Good start baby! Then, we will roll the ball into carrot shape, with one end tapered. Finally with the help of a spoon we trace three slants on the carrot. So, we obtained a blue carrot. Look at the two carrots” orange and blue” put them on the table in front of the baby, point to both and say: these colors are called: ”Complementary colors!” Complementary colors lay exactly opposite each other on the color wheel. (Show the baby the color wheel and point to the colors) In the simple color wheel you just look at, yellow is complementary to purple, red is complementary to green, and blue is complementary to orange. When complementary colors are placed next to each other, both look bright! To make the idea of complementary colors easier to understand, Iet’s look at the color wheel, and put each carrot on its color and observe their bright colors.
