Is following a recipe with 20 preschoolers crazy? YES!! But we did it, and I must say that it turned out great! The class was divided into three large tables, and the children all took turns doing their part of the recipe. Everyone got a turn to stir at the end, and then scooped the batter into their soup cans, which where then wisked off to the culinary kitchens to bake. Here is a peek at the organized madness...
Step 1: Feeling and smelling the ingredients
Step 2: Measuring and adding the ingredients to the bowl
Step 3: Stir, stir, stir!
Unfortunately, we did not get pictures of the finished products....but you all saw how they turned out and it sounds like it was a big hit! The recipe will be sent out shortly....
