As you'll be well aware I love baking with my boys but after seeing that programme I decided I also really want to 'educate' them about food as we cook/bake together.
Someone was owed a baking session from his 'Learning to Ride a Bike' chart
So today we rubbed in the butter and I let them do everything they could handle - whisk, beat, soften butter in the microwave, measure, add and mix and I talked about 'why' we do certain things when we bake.
But before you think we're getting all 'culinary artist' on you we did decorate true to our preferred style - colour, sugar, fun (not so much class!).
What activities have you got planned in the holidays?
This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be) is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too. Please inspire me with the little moments you are snatching with your little people OR with ideas I could do with mine. If you have blogged about it please leave a comment so we can all visit and encourage each other.
Simple. Intentional. Achievable: becoming the mama I want to be.
