Say: Now it’s kitchen time! Let’s go to the kitchen and look for smelly-tasty vegetables! Let’s walk to the kitchen! Make the walk fun. Sing :( Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream) while walking with him….say: here we are. This is our kitchen where we always learn something new! Now let’s see what is waiting for you on the table! Point to the table and say: Look at the table. Do you see an orange pepper? Now, we will open the fridge and get another one and talk about both of them! Let’s sit at the table and discover their secrets! Put the baby in the seat and approach the seat next to the kitchen table. Put both peppers in front of him to have a closer look at them, also to feel their textures between his hands! Sit next to the baby; hold a pepper and say: Orange pepper! Look at the color! Orange pepper is orange! It’s an orange pepper! Orange bell peppers, as their name suggests have a striking orange color. They have a wonderful combination of tangy taste and crunchy texture. However, compared to green peppers, they are sweeter and more flavorful. These days, health professionals are encouraging you to "eat the rainbow." In fact, including foods in your diet of every color can help your body function at optimal levels and fight off certain chronic conditions. Give one orange pepper to the baby and say: This pepper is cool! It isn’t cold because it was on the table, so it has the kitchen’s temperature! Now, give him the second pepper and say: Cold! This orange pepper is cold! Do you know why, baby? Because this pepper was in the fridge where the temperature is higher than the kitchen’s temperature, so this pepper is colder than the first one! Smell the pepper and say: Mmm! fresh and spicy! Approach it to the baby’s nose and say: It smells spicy!! Do you feel its spicy scent? Ask: What did you use to smell the orange pepper, baby? Yup! You used your nose to smell as I did! Remember, sweetie, Smell is the sense that enables one to perceive odors; it depends on the stimulation of sense organs in the nose by small particles carried in inhaled air! Take a tiny piece of orange pepper, put it in the baby’s mouth and say:”eat it, baby! Orange pepper has a tangy taste and crunchy texture! So baby, what did you use to taste? Great! You used your tongue to taste and thanks to the taste buds that are found on your tongue and allow you to experience tastes! Marvelous! You have learned a lot today, and you have experienced different temperatures! Now it’s time to take some rest!
