Before we started some of the children decided they wanted to make a sign. It read 'Orange shop. Free juice'.
Learning to use real tools and equipment safely helps develop mastery skills.
What great patience everyone demonstrated as they waited for their turn to juice the tangelos.
Some tangelos didn't quite make it as far at the juicer!
At last it was time for some tasting. Amazingly this was even more popular, and we soon had a huge queue waiting for the freshly squeezed juice. Tangelo juice can be quite sour so we added some water to make it more palatable.
Here are some of the children's thoughts on the juice,
Shinayah "it tastes of yummy oranges"
Kiedis "it's super yum"
Azariah "it tastes like tangelos"
Emma "it tastes a little sour"
Juliet "really yummy, can I have more?"
Our new composter even benefited from all the tangelo peels.
