This term at pre-primary, The Muffin's class has been studying "mini-beasts" (ie. all the little insects, spiders, snails, worms, etc that live in the garden). To celebrate the end of term, they had a little party. Each child dressed as their favourite mini-beast, and brought a plate of food to share. The Muffin and I decided to make mini-beast cookies!
The Muffin actually helped a lot with these; she did most of the caterpillars herself, plus the purple bits on the snails, and the pink bits on the butterflies (she suggested "let's use the wet-on-wet technique for these spots, Mummy!" Hilarious. She's five.)
We had lots of fun doing these together, and I hear the class had lots of fun eating them!
