I was surprised how successful baking with a 15 month old was, and how much she was actually able to do. Similarly the collage - she was really into it.
I hope you have as much fun looking at these pictures as we did!
We made scones - of the rough and ready singular giant variety. There was no weighing, and no recipe. To be honest, I'm quite surprised how well they/it came out.
The 'recipe' was 5 heaped dessert spoons of self raising flour, 1 heaped dessert spoon of margarine, 1 egg, a slosh of soya milk and a handful of raisins. The flour and marge were rubbed in together, then the egg and soya milk stirred in, the whole lot mixed up and unceremoniously dumped on a baking tray, squashed flat, with raisins stuck on, baked at 180C for about 15 mins.

|Mini-M was chief raisin-sticker-onner. If she had her way, pretty much everything in life would be liberally coated in raisins. Often our living room carpet is!|
|Caught in the act - raisin theft - and very almost a nasty scone/sock incident!|
|Baked and cooling until after tea|

|This was not a set up - she stuck the star there, and was very pleased with herself!|
