Getting everyone involved in baking!

As I said recently I am always looking for things that all three of my girls will enjoy. Big Girl and I used to bake a lot when the Little Ones were too small to understand they were being left out but more recently they have been hanging around the kitchen stair gate getting cross with us - oops!

So I've taken to trying to do baking and cooking activities at the dinning room table. I have given them their own bowl, spoon and some of the ingredients, flour, water, maybe some raisins. But last week we were making rice crispy cakes and I just couldn't face the carnage involved with letting them loose with chocolate. So I gave them some silicone cake molds, bowls, spoons and cotton wool balls. They were perfectly happy moving the cotton wool from one to the other. I'm guessing it's good for their fine motor skills too? Bonus!

The only problem was that Big Girl quickly lost interest in the cooking and asked for her own cotton wool. Leaving me to fill the molds. Oh well.... you win some, you loose some!
