Car washing and refueling cars is a massive interest with many of our tamariki at the moment. To extend this interest we went on a trip to our local petrol station. When we returned, the children wanted to make our own petrol station so we set to it. 

We've made a car wash and recycled boxes to make a fuel pump. The car wash and petrol service had become a very popular activity. Tamariki take turns to be the petrol attendant and they are learning to be patient and wait in the line for their turn.  There has been lots of social interactions happening during this play. Some children have been particularly interested in the numbers and words they saw at the station and they are now developing an understanding of their real purpose. What a fun and creative learning activity this has been for everyone.
