Tasting and exploring Hot Cross Buns in Nursery

Today the children enjoyed trying hot cross buns during snack time. Some children loved them, others were not so keen but we’re willing to try. We looked at the complete hot cross bun and talk about the cross symbolising Jesus in the Christian faith at Easter time. We used our senses to smell, feel, look and taste the hot cross buns. A big well done for being Can do Colin’s and trying something new Nursery Crew!
