This month was our first baking day, and we followed a small group recipe for 6 children. We measured applesauce, cinnamon, and white glue to make a kind of brown, fragrant playdough! We all helped to pat it flat between two sheets of wax paper, and Mrs. Simms rolled it out even flatter. After we chose our favourite Christmas cutout, we put our names near them and used a straw to poke a hole in them. We'll hang them on our Christmas trees where they will smell beautifully for many years! Too bad this recipe is not for eating, but it was a good introduction to the baking production line, which we will start to do more regularly in January.
Thank you to all the parents who sent in ingredients! We are very proud of what we can do on our own.
