This week we have been busy preparing a little something for all the dads. We started off with our cards that involved lots of fun stamping on our poem cards. We then decided to try and please the dads with an edible gift - homemade gingerbread men.
The children had a lovely time helping to weigh and measure out the ingredients as well as pouring and mixing (with a tiny bit of help from the blender at several intervals!). Even our youngest joined in by mixing a bit of flour in a saucepan and then generally banging the pan to make music for everyone!
When our dough was chilled the children got very excited about cutting out their men, continuously asking if they could eat them yet! After baking we used glitter gel to decorate the gingerbread men, some of the resulting designs being pretty creative!
We wish all the dad's a lovely fathers day and hope that they like their sweet treats!
