Shock your children by taking a taste of a repulsive poo! Then, by following our recipe, explore what it is that makes us feel emotions like disgust.
Through this activity, Dwain and Sahara learn how our emotions and opinions can change over time as our understanding develops. By making her own fake poo with chocolate and biscuits, Sahara discovers that she can ‘unlearn’ her feelings of disgust when she sees that not all is as it seems.
