Julie Amos – Principal Wynnum West State School

We have loved using The Kitchen Kart at Wynnum West State School. We have enjoyed the portability, flexibility and ease of use.

Everything about the cart is so easy. It doesn’t take long for anyone to learn about the cart and it’s features.

The teachers are so pleased with the curriculum sheets that are supplied with the cart. Each lesson has the objectives, assessment, resources, Appendix list, important language used and then the teaching and learning activities clearly and systematically set out.

Recipes are healthy and easy to provision for a class.

Overall a fantastic resource for “hands on learning”

How to make homemade Snow Globes!

A homemade snow globe is a childhood must! You can use some plastic figurines lying about the house, or even some old LEGO pieces.

 

 

Materials:

  • small glass jar
  • a plastic figurine
  • glycerin (optional: while it’s not necessary, it makes the glitter float better)
  • glitter
  • water
  • glue (we used a hot glue gun, but superglue should work too)

 

Instructions:

  1. Decide what you would like to put in your snow globe. We used a some Christmas decorations
  2. Glue, place, and stick your plastic figurine to the inside of the jar lid
  3. Fill your jar with water and/or glycerin and add glitter—1-2 teaspoons.
  4. Screw the lid on the jar — glue it if you’re concerned about your child trying to open it
  5. Shake your jar or tip it upside down to make it snow!
