Sugar modelling at Twyford Day Nursery
Children at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford have had a go at sugar modelling.
The team at the nursery on Bridge Farm Road, were inspired to produce the activity after a number of children’s birthdays in nursey over the last month. They extended the topic by giving the children different resources and materials to encourage imagination and fine motor skills.
The result was a range of fabulous mini monster models.
Cedar Park Third in Charge, Rachael Main said:
“This activity was child initiated through lots of talk of birthdays and celebrations. We often do playdough modelling in the nursery but using icing gave the children an opportunity to work with different materials and textures. Who knows, maybe we have inspired the next generation of master confectioners and bakers at Cedar Park.”
