St Patricks day the children wanted to cook but we had to look through our recipe book to find one with no eggs. We found one for scones and made the mixture but one of the girls wanted pink scones so the others decided to have green as it was St Patricks day. Once we mixed all the ingredients by mixing it between our fingers then squishing it with our hands we used our hands to roll them into balls and put them into cases to cook.
The scones were ‘yummy’. The girls were able to count out the cases we were using and split the mixture into 6 pieces to make the scones.
Cooking encourages creativity. This allows children to make decisions giving them opportunities to experiment and be creative.
Cooking experiences develop children’s small motor control. Using cooking tools, such as shredders, graters, grinders, and melon ballers develops fine motor skills.
