(Goblin is 28 months)
I found a recipe for peanut butter biscuits over at Lessons Leant Journal. I love peanut butter so thought I'd try them out with Goblin.
The ingredients for these biscuits are:
60g castor sugar
60g brown sugar
60g plain flour
200g smooth peanut butter
dash vanilla essence
In case you don't want to read on I'll tell you now that you heat the over to 190 C (375 F, Gas mark 5) and cook the biscuits for 10 minutes.
I'm teaching Goblin that the first thing you do when cooking is wash your hands - normally washing your hands means playing with the tap for half an hour, but when its time to cook Goblin does simply wash his hands, dry them and come to the mat. He obviously likes cooking more than playing with water.
Hublet helped Goblin put the ingredients (except the jam) in the bowl.
For Christmas Hublet was given some cookie cutters in the shape of ninjas. They are to make Ninjabread (get it!)
I thought it would be fun to make a couple of bleeding ninjas (a bit macabre I know but it makes me giggle). Goblin helped fill all the holes with jam - including his own mouth hole. And then he felt the need to go wash his hands.
Then we popped them in the oven and while they were cooking Goblin volunteered to clean up.
Note to self, baked jam is really hot!
