Our practical life activity last week was making fresh-squeezed orange juice. I had planned to tie that in with a craft to make some orange slice Christmas ornaments, but am afraid that did not happen. Still, Dora was so excited about making fresh-squeezed orange juice. Clearly, she had not realized that juice actually came from fruit before this adventure. She really wanted us to make all sorts of juices afterwards and it was hard to explain to her why we couldn’t make apple juice and so forth with this particular juicer. She gave everyone samples of the juice and what can I say? Fresh-squeezed juice really is best!
