The price of oranges finally came down a couple of weeks ago, so my assistant had the great idea to make fresh squeezed juice.
The children loved the process of pushing the orange halves on to the juicer and grinding them around.
Having to work very hard for a few sips of juice was an interesting concept for them.
The smell of fresh squeezed juice filled the classroom and the center was full throughout our playtime.
Many of the children enjoyed squeezing the juice out and being able to offer it to others, and several wanted to take some home to share with mom and dad.
A great use of the leftover orange halves is to fill them with birdseed and make a pipe cleaner handle to put outside for the birds and squirrels.
