Today we did what went down as one of the best activities ever, we made bread! As it was half term I had children aged 2 to 12 and it was great for all of them. We measured out all the ingredients and mixed them together, then I divided the mixture up between the children so they could knead and shape their own little loaves. They kneaded their dough and spent a long time shaping and re-shaping them until they were each happy. Then the bread was left to rise before going into the oven. Whilst it was cooking the children loved the smells coming from the kitchen and when it was ready they couldn’t wait to eat it with some jam. As the sun had come out we took our bread and jam outside to the yard and enjoyed it in the sunshine :o)
