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 a carrot? 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 carrots 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 up the carrot and say:” carrot”! Show it to the baby and say: ” Naturally sugary, usually orange color carrot roots have a crunchy texture and sweet and minty aromatic taste! Carrots can be found in other colors including white, yellow, red, or purple. These root vegetables come with wholesome health benefiting compounds such as beta-carotene, vitamin A, minerals and antioxidants in ample amounts. It is the antioxidant “Beta-carotene” that gives carrots their bright orange color and converted into “Vitamin A” that is important for healthy eyes. Give one carrot to the baby and say: This carrot is cool! It isn’t cold because it was on the table, so it has the kitchen’s temperature! Now, give him the second carrot and say: Cold! This carrot is cold! Do you know why, baby? Because this carrot was in the fridge where the temperature is higher than the kitchen’s temperature, so this carrot is colder than the previous one! Smell the carrot and say: Mmm, savory! Approach it to the baby’s nose and say: It smells savory! Do you feel its savory scent? Ask: What did you use to smell the carrot, 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 carrot, approach it to the baby’s mouth and let him nibble it and say:”Did you like it, baby? Carrot has a crunchy texture and sweet taste! 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.
