SKILLS DEVELOPED IN THE AFRICAN SAFARI SET
TACTILE SENSE affects children’s cognitive, language, social and emotional development.
The soft texture of the cloud dough, smooth surface of the bowls, textured candles and
cupcake moulds, and hard utensils all offer tactile input for little hands.
OLFACTORY SENSE refers to the sense of smell and is stimulated by the fragrance of the
baby oil added to the flour.
Children learn to use a variety of measuring tools and count the
candles. They learn about volume by filling bowls using different sizes of measuring cups.
They also learn to recognise cookie cutter shapes and sort measuring cups according to size.
are developed when children press shapes into the cloud dough. Using
the spatula and spoon to stir the cloud dough in the bowls strengthen the arm and shoulder
muscles necessary when writing for prolonged periods. Children use their pincer grip to
position candles on their cakes which assist with correct pencil grip.
BILATERAL INTEGRATION refers to the child’s ability to engage both sides of their body
during play. Both hands play together while mixing cloud dough, scooping cloud dough into
bowls and the ring mould, and pressing shapes into the cloud dough.
Being able to cross over from one side of the body to the other assists
with reading and writing during the school years. Midline crossing is encouraged as children
reach across the tray to collect ingredients or baking utensils.
Children are introduced to new concepts like recipes, names of
ingredients and the names of utensils; thus, expanding their vocabulary. The use of
prepositions to describe various actions during play is also encouraged.
The prospect of baking for an occasion leads children’s imaginations into
a world of fun and fantasy.
