Lima’s Red Hot Chilli

In nursery we have been reading a fantastic book, Lima’s Red Hot Chilli.  The story really captured the children’s imagination.  They used the story props to retell the story in the home corner, everyone wanted to be Lima!  We tasted some of the food from the story and made our own representations of the using a range of collage materials.  The children examined the chillies and painted pictures of them.   Everyone’s favourite picture was when the fire came out of Lima’s mouth, so we colour mixed red and yellow paint and painted our own fire paintings.
