Authentic Dough is an idea my colleague (Thanks Louise!) shared from a trip to New Zealand. It involves the children using real dough to develop their hand muscles for future handwriting. This week we made shortbread. The children love that they can eat the dough at the end of the activity. The smell of warm shortbread in the centre is beautiful. Stay tuned for some more cooking in the coming weeks.
We enjoy the fruits of the kids labours at home too, lovely shortbread biscuits for afternoon tea, yummy.
