Learning Through Play

At footsteps Stafford recently it was really interesting to see how easily the children move between the real, imaginary and virtual worlds.

Playing in the home corner this small group “cooked” a lovely meal with the real fruits and vegetables in their toy kitchen, practiced chopping with the wooden cutting fruit and then prepared a delicious monster feast with the Kitchen Monsters app from Toca Boca on the iPad.

We love Toca Boca at Footsteps – their creative, open-ended range of apps are great at encouraging children`s imaginations and they are lovely to look at too.
If you`ve not already seen them why not try Kitchen Monsters for yourself – it`s available as a free download

Sausage and dragon fruit milkshake anyone?
