Kids in the Kitchen


 Weighing and measuring. . . . 

counting and giggling. . . .

 taking turns and making observations. . . .

 sharing tasks and licking the bowl. . . .

 co-ordination and comparisons . . . .

 the hands of an artist. . . . 

 the cooked result. . . . 

 the waiting for cooling. . . . 

the iced delight.

This was the request for today when I asked, 'What do you want to do today?'
They wanted to make marble cupcakes just like I did for Nanna's birthday cake but for cupcakes to take to the park tomorrow.  They also wanted to head back to the Rotary Bookfest which we did and spent just on 2 hours there.

I did have plans for more assignment this afternoon, but one needs to have priorities.  One day these little hands will be all grown up.  There is just no amount of money anywhere in the universe that can equal my day today.    

Thank you so much for stopping by my place today, I hope you had a treasure chest of a day at your place.

That's a great thing to do for your kids! I love the look of the cakes with the swirls on them. Of course you can't beat a bit of icing either! Did you find any good books? Sounds like fun.

I remember my two older children making cakes and biscuits together. The youngest likes to cook on her own and at 12 she's pretty good. Marble cup cakes look like fun :).
