Today we are making some Easter Biscuits! I have missed out a few steps here as I needed to step in and help and other areas I got wrapped up with the children I forgot to take pictures!
'W' started out scooping the butter, we looked at the numbers on the scales and watched the arm move closer to the number we needed.
Lots of stirring for those strong arms!
'E' having a turn too!
Once it was all mixed up we split up the dough and got rolling! Taking turns with the rolling pin. We have some shapes that I had picked out and we spoke about what they were and how they were linked to Easter and Spring.
'W' knew what he was doing straight away, although I helped occasionally where the dough was getting a little too thin in places so we squished it together and started again!
Make sure those shapes are pushed down well!
'W' and 'E' then told me what colours they would like for their icing. 'W' chose yellow and 'E' chose blue!
A little bit into the decorating 'W' asked 'E' if he could have a bit of her blue and she could have some of his yellow! Great swapping and sharing
Don't forget some sprinkles to finish them off
And don't forget the best bit; tasting them!!
A lovely morning spent together chatting and creating yummy treats.
Later on that afternoon we were messing around with my phone taking some selfies!
'W' was trying to watch a film and have some chill out time so we were just bugging him really! We let him get back to his film while 'E' and I played!
This was an interesting introduction to this aspect of technology, 'E' wasn't quite sure what to make of her 'photo' moving as she did. I will look at how to introduce some more technology to my setting, in suitable ways, so we can develop her knowledge further. I will also make some time for mirror play as this is an important aspect of her self awareness
