The children have showed a liking for apples during their snack time, because of this we set up a provocation for the children to do some apple printing.
They decoratively set up a table with white paper and red paint on top of half sliced apples. The children immediately came to investigate and started spreading the paint around the paper with apples.
They dabbed the apples around the paper, and impressions of apples soon covered the paper.
This provocation offered the children a sensory experience strengthening their fine motor skills. The children showed such a great interest in working with the food as a language. We will continue using food as a provocation.
