This simple game is fun and easy to play. It will help extend their knowledge and recognition of different types of food - and it is a good way of developing your child's keyboard skills as they help Small collect ingredients on his Spoon-mobile. All your child has to do is click the arrows keys to collect the food - and avoid the obstacles.
How to extend the fun
Play a little game using some ingredients you have in your fridge or kitchen cupboards. Point a few out - or place a small amount on a dish (eg flour, sugar, fruit, vegetables, jam) and see if they can identify the different types of food. You could also do a taste test - get them to close their eyes and see if they can guess what the ingredients are.
How to make a magic moment
Help your child to make a simple chef's hat. Take a large piece of white paper or card (which will sit like a tall tube on their head) and measure how much you'll need so it fits snugly around their forehead. Then let your child decorate the paper/card using crayons, stickers, etc. Once they've finished designing their hat, fix it together at the back with tape or staples... and you're good to go!
