Terrific Toddlers Have Fun! is a series of activites to join with Beautiful Girlhood’s “Tot School” with Kelly-Anne. Not sure if I qualify being a Mom and not a sister 🙂 – what a blessing Kelly-Anne is as big sister and oldest daughter. Thanks for the inspiration Kelly-Anne!
Our toddlers love to be a part of whatever we are doing! If I am kneading bread dough they want to try, if I am juicing carrots – they want to do it too and they just love it!! If we are making a smoothie they’ll drag the step along and climb up to join in – washing dishes, vacuuming, mowing the lawn – they wanna do it too! Its how they experience life and learn – and besides they are little mama’s and dada’s in training!
We love making Breadsticks from Se7en – they are very yummy! (ours are long and thin and we use spelt flour)
Making Breadsticks turned out to be a brilliant tactile activity!
After making the dough, I put out two plates – one with oil and one with toppings (oregano, herb salt and parmesan) and a bowl of flour.
I popped each bit of dough into the flour and our 1 year old had a fabulous time squishing each dough ball, rolling it in the oil and then in the toppings and I placed it on the baking tray.
And then smearing and preparing the toppings for further use!
More mixing, spreading…
