Baking at the bilingual preschool Les Petits Crayons
The end of the year is the time for celebrating and preparing sweet treats. An opportunity we would not want to miss at the bilingual preschool Les Petits Crayons
When baking, children work on many fundamental skills with a passion.
- Understanding and following a recipe step by step trains their working memory and their patience! Those two skills are part of the executive functions, as theorised by Maria Montessori in particular, which enable brain developement.
- They also practice various types of motor skills, having to pour the ingredients in the pot, mix them and precisely put them in the pan.
In the end, children are usually so proud of eating their own cookies and sharing them with their friends, teachers and parents! Party time at Les Petits Crayons bilingual preschool!
