We are all SO looking forward to half term and moving away from hours of screen time. Get busy with your little ones in the kitchen and make some of these fun mouth-watering favourites.
NO COOKING INVOLVED!
Make that daily piece of fruit a bit more interesting. A crab, an owl and the sweetest green turtle. Have to admit I do love a bit of food sculpture. Click on the link below and get creating. Ingredients: Apples!
We have fallen in love with these little wobbly crafts. Halve several large oranges. Scoop out the flesh and membrane from each half (be careful not to make any holes). Make up the jelly according to the pack instructions and fill the orange skin halves with jelly liquid. Let the jelly set completely in the fridge. Using a very sharp knife cut the halves in half to make quarters. Make a flag using cocktail sticks and coloured paper.
Ingredients: Cocktails sticks, oranges, jelly, paper and pens
Make that lunchtime sandwich a bit more interesting. Rainbow coloured cheese toastie - what's not to love!
Ingredients: Cheese, food colouring, sliced bread.
Easy peasy to make and a fab addition to a glass of water. Great to get little ones drinking in this boiling weather.
Ingredients: Whatever you can find in your fridge or garden (edible obvs).
An 70's party classic. Cut the grapefruit in half, cover him with tin foil then load up his spiky bristles with cheese and fruit.
Mine (the second one - not quite so professional) ! Struggled a bit with his nose :)
Ingredients: 1 grapefruit, foil, cocktail sticks, grapes, cheese, blueberries
The perfect fairy dessert. Cut off the crusts, butter the bread then load up the sprinkles.
Ingredients: Sliced white bread, butter or cream cheese and sprinkles.
