The temperatures are warming up and it is nice for the preschool students to play outside. They have been learning all about nutrition and healthy eating habits and the food pyramid. They have enjoyed setting up a restaurant in the classroom housekeeping center. They developed a menu and have one or two friends sit down at their housekeeping table to order food at their restaurant.
With the warmer temperatures outside, we decided to move the kitchen outside, too. I read often about the outdoor kitchen play space at other blogs.

I think there will be more outdoor kitchen time for these preschool students.
