I don't do lots of activities with my children but there is at least one thing I do : baking!
As time goes we have acquired quite a variety of cookie cutters. We have a pig, a teddy bear, a butterfly, a chick, the road track and cars cutters and even the whole alphabet! (from when I was making letters biscuits to make DD2 practice her spelling).
When we do cakes the children do the whole thing, but for biscuits I generally make some dough, take the cutters out and let them roll and shape, intervening now and then to tell DD2 that no she can 't eat her remaining dough yet as she still has quite enough to make more biscuits.
Yesterday however I was a bit more involved as DD3, 18 months, joined in for the first time. She's very much into putting things in and out of containers at the moment. Sure enough she made little bits of dough and conscientiously put them in a cookie cutter and out again. It was so sweet!
There was the little incident of her 'finding' more dough and the mysterious disappearance of her brother's car biscuit, but all in all it was a success and such a good feeling to do something enjoyed by all from 18 months to 10 years!
Happy baking... :)
