I was thinking I need to do more baking with Amelie. She’s old enough now, and we don’t do enough of it. Partly because I never know what to make, or I don’t have the ingredients, or the time…. guilt, guilt. But this one is easy, simple ingredients, simple decorating. We made some salt dough magic wands a few weeks ago and they worked so well that I thought I’d try a biscuit version. And – news flash – you can stick a wooden skewer into any biscuit and it makes it extra amazing for kids. Just don’t let them run around with it!
Now that the weather is getting a bit greyer (booooo, winter), I’ve been looking for ways to entertain my toddler without the option of dropping her into the sandpit at my local park. I came across an article in a Brighton magazine about making your own baby-friendly edible paint, so I thought I’d invite a few of Amelie’s friends over and give it a go.
