I love my homeschooling groups. We have such a nice time baking together. In our homeschooling series I let the kids decide what we bake each week. I feel like it is a good way for them to think about what they want to put in their body and what they are inspired to do. Also it gets them thinking about recipes and possibilities and some of the time crazy recipes show up that even I had never tried making before. I encourage creativity and brain storming.
Some of our cakes.
Before we parted, the kids tasted each flavor of the cakes and we discussed the difference. This is important to me, because I want the kids to become aware of flavors and mouth feel.
And if you need proof.... yes your kids do the dishes here too! :)
I can't wait for next week. We will start making Fairy houses!
