Last week was the first official week of Poppies Daycare doing Stay and Play classes.. and it was just SO much fun!
On Thursday we opened the barn doors to budding little chefs.. and this week we made scone pizzas.
I was so impressed with this recipe, it's great for getting the little one's involved and they are just SO YUM, so I thought I would share it with everyone so they can do it at home.
YOU WILL NEED:
For the dough:
500g self-raising flour
250g ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons mixed herbs
For the topping:
Your little one's favourite toppings!
- Literacy: Mark making in the flour thats on the table
- Physical Development: Mixing ingredients in the bowl, kneading the dough, rolling & cutting the dough
- Communication & Language: Talk to your child as much as possible when cooking, they will be learning words for new ingredients, smells, textures.
- Understanding the world: It is so important for children to be educated about food and cooking so that they are able to make healthy choices later in life. When cooking explain where the ingredients come from, whether they grow in the ground or come from an animal.
- Expressive Arts & Design: The most fun recipes allow the children to use most of their senses:
SIGHT: Seeing the cooking stages and how they change.
SMELL: Discovering new smells of different ingredients
TOUCH: Using their hands to experience the feel of new and different textures
TASTE:Getting to taste their yummy creations!
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development: Cooking in a group is great fun, and teaches your child to take turns, respecting the other children. Also by giving them small responsibilities and supporting them through these will build their confidence.
