Monster Meal

During our daily Guided Reading sessions in Reception this week, some children have enjoyed reading the book ‘Monster Meal’ by Paul Shipton.

The children then wanted to create their own meal for a monster. We wrote a recipe and named it ‘Mud Meal’.

In our child initiated learning time we then followed the recipe and made the meal in our outdoor mud kitchen. It was super sticky and gooey. We were careful to follow the recipe and put the correct number of spoonfuls and cups into our mixture.

What you could do at home:

  • Write your own recipe for a monster.
  • You could go on a walk around your local park or the woods and find things to make your monster meal.
  • We would love to see some photos of your yummy concoctions!
