The Joy of the Process, Squeezing Oranges…

Inspired by a post over at Counting Coconuts, we squeezed oranges! It is amazing how much little one’s enjoy the process of an activity, the journey… We  went down to the veggie shop and bought a few bags of fresh oranges and Kye was itching to squeeze them. So Jenna set up all the squeezing equipment, Kye eagerly put on his apron and got to work… He just loved this:) We all had wonderful fresh juice to drink…

And he ended up eating quite a few oranges too!

    I’ve been doing oranges lollies with orange juice, and my tot loved to prepare them, but of course with a squeezer machine! I agree they love all the process. Try the lolly, my husband ask for them everyday now.

    What a lovely thing to do. I remember my own child at a similar age being fascinated by whole corn on the cob.

    I think it’s so wonderful when kids get to connect with the process of juicing, baking, cooking etc.– understanding where it all comes from. Sweet photos. And an adorable apron he has!

    We had a squeezer once – it was ancient when I was a child – sort of an art deco metal thing with an arm you pulled down. I wonder what happened to it? My husband grew up with a small citrus grove in his back yard, and they squeezed oranges every morning. I think mostly, I like the picture of Kye in the apron . . .
