Sahana walked into my class on a Monday and called out to her friends. She was excited about trying out a new game with her classmates. She got the idea after visiting her favourite restaurant over the weekend. Sahana explained the plan to her peers, and everyone started looking for suitable objects that were required to set up a restaurant. Wooden logs became stools, planks turned into tables, our play kitchen turned into a restaurant workspace and the little chef made a hat for her using a dupatta. The chef asked her guests what they would like to eat. Spaghetti was ordered and a plate of idli for the baby (a doll). The little chef giggled and used some colourful yarn to make pesto spaghetti and wooden coasters became steamed idlis. The children had a great time playing the game; it was also a fantastic learning experience for them.
