B.M.W.B #15 - Junior Masterchef

Not that I've seen many episodes but oh the inspiration....

As you'll be well aware I love baking with my boys but after seeing that programme I decided I also really want to 'educate' them about food as we cook/bake together.

Someone was owed a baking session from his 'Learning to Ride a Bike' chart

So today we rubbed in the butter and I let them do everything they could handle - whisk, beat, soften butter in the microwave, measure, add and mix and I talked about 'why' we do certain things when we bake.

But before you think we're getting all 'culinary artist' on you we did decorate true to our preferred style - colour, sugar, fun (not so much class!).

What activities have you got planned in the holidays?

This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be)  is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too. Please inspire me with the little moments you are snatching with your little people OR with ideas I could do with mine. If you have blogged about it please leave a comment so we can all visit and encourage each other.

Simple. Intentional. Achievable: becoming the mama I want to be.

I've started to step back and let Rascal take the reins when we've been cooking recently. Its amazing to see how much they can do on her own without any help... isn't it?!

Looks like the baking was done while a couple of little master chefs were still in their jammies

Indeed I think we under-estimate so often with children

Oh yes - we were being very virtuous and baking at 8am (it doesn't happen often!
