Chocolate ones, butterscotch ones, raisin ones, peanut ones: we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to cookies! They are a favourite of people of all ages, especially with children! As part of our June Holiday theme on ‘Food’, the children baked and decorated their own cookies and doughnuts! With the help from the experts at ‘Genius R Us’ , we proved that kids can indeed bake! Clad in mini aprons, our little bakers got busy!
They measured, sifted and whipped like professionals! The outcome? Mouth watering, sweet smelling, golden brown morsels that the children were only too happy to decorate with colourful icing and yummy toppings. After the final touches, the yummy treats looked too good to eat, yet hard to resist at the same time! Our young Playgroup and Nursery tots wasted no time in gobbling up some of the cookies and only just managed to save the rest for home!
On the other side of the premise where the Kindergarten children were, the kids had a wild time learning to bake doughnuts! Having only eaten the yummy bread all ready made, the children found it really interesting to learn how they are actually made. Better yet, rather than making the usual round doughnuts with a hole in the middle, the trainers at ‘Genius R Us’ got the children to create their own shapes! After pounding, turning, twisting and shaping the dough, doughnuts of all shapes and sizes appeared!
The puffy bread brought about a buzz of excitement as they came out of the oven, the children were eagarly waiting to move on to the fun part, decorating the doughnuts! The doughnuts were dipped into melted chocolate and painstakingly decorated with a variety of toppings like fruit loops, cornflakes, icing sugar and chocolate chip! Like the little ones, these children could not resist popping one or two doughnuts into their mouths as they worked. Suddenly the place turned into a sticky-chewy doughnut party
At the end of the day, the children’s delicious creations were packed into little take home boxes to bring home. No one could deny that there was a better way to learn about ‘Food’ than to get hands-on at it! It certainly was a lip-smacking experience for the children and the teachers!
