Food Preparation- Spreading Jam

 This week in the food preparation area, the children were able to learn how to spread jam on bread.  For each child, we used a new bowl of jam, a clean knife and new paper plate.
 The first step is to put on an apron and then wash their hands.  They ask a teacher for the jam and bread and carry it back to the tray.  They dip their (child sized) knife into the jam and put it on the bread. 
Then, they spread the jam on the bread.  Of course, the last step is to eat and enjoy!
Activities such as these help the child to become more independent and increases their fine motor skills.
