Stone Soup

Our school year has started at quite a slow pace. Last week we even took the time to make “stone soup.” In fact, our stone soup had no stones at all, but lots of fresh vegetables.

It just so happened that we read the book Stone Soup during circle time, and Nic got really excited about the idea of making soup. Soon we were in Dani’s backyard play kitchen washing and cutting vegetables, gathering herbs, seasoning and making soup.

Cooking is a great practical life activity. 

I sure believe it is about time for my 8 year old to learn how to cut carrots and peel potatoes…

It would have been wonderful if they had actually eaten the soup, but they didn’t! Dani just gave it a try and ate some of the potatoes… The soup tasted good, though, and me and my husband ate quite a lof of it

 Well, at least they had a great time and we all enjoyed having dinner outside in our backyard … We even had a little fire in our fire pit…  After dinner, we roasted some marshmallows! It turned out to be an extra-ordinary kind of evening! I think we should cook more often…
