Fridges, Freezers & Washing Machines

Look at other appliances in the kitchen, including fridges, freezers and washing machines. Can your child tell you what these are used for? Both fridges and freezers keep things cold. What is the difference? Under careful supervision, let him touch food which has just been taken out of the fridge and food which has just come out of the freezer. Point out that freezer food is at a much lower temperature and is frozen hard, like ice cream, whereas refrigerated food is simply chilled, like a cold drink. Frozen food lasts much longer.
The washing machine washes clothes, rinses the soap off them and spins them dry, by spinning the tub round and round, just like his spinning top.
