We had fun painting hot air balloons floating in a summer sky.
We made Easter eggs. We had to break the chocolate into smaller pieces. Then we had to melt the chocolate. Spoon the chocolate into the mould. Swirl around until the mould is coated using the back of a spoon. Place the mould in the fridge for ten minutes to allow the chocolate to set. Repeat the process to build up a good layer of chocolate in each mould. Remove the egg halves from each mould. We enjoyed decorating our eggs with yellow ribbon and chicks. All agreed making the eggs was fun but the real treat was taking them home to eat.
We made biscuits for Christmas.
First we had to beat butter with icing sugar. Then we had to add in lemon peel.
Next we added the flour and salt. The mixture had to be worked into a dough.
On a floured surface we had to knead the mixture until it was smooth. We wrapped the dough in cling-film and left it in the fridge overnight. The next day we rolled out the dough and cut out biscuit shapes. They were baked in the oven for fifteen minutes until just slightly coloured.
The biscuits were coated with royal icing. We had fun cutting out Christmas trees, snowmen and stars from ready to roll coloured icing. Inevitably we had to sample the biscuits before taking them home.
We were also busy working on our Christmas art work.
