I’ve said on here lots of times, I’m not a fan of messy play and we don’t do nearly enough of it at home (that’s what preschool is made for, right?) But I adore baking with the kids, especially on rainy days. It’s challenging with two children of the same age to supervise, but it’s really lovely to be able to have fun in the kitchen with them now they’re old enough to help break eggs and mix ingredients together.
On this particular occasion, E decided to get in on the act. T1 decided to share the obligatory licking of the bowl with his baby sister who had been watching us make our chocolate cake. She was most impressed, so much so that she screamed the house down when I took the licked-clean bowl and spoon off her to wash up.
