A Family Weekend

This evening my nephew has come over to stay with Nanny and Grandad.  He has been so full of beans this evening, playing trains with Grandad, building Thomas puzzles and baking cookies with Auntie Lo (which is what he calls me).

All clean and cosy from his bath we set out to make some simple cookies for Nan, Grandad and Mummy when she picks Teddie up tomorrow morning.

The recipe is really simple (we didn't need the rolling pin or shape cutters - but Teddie insisted we needed them, soo....) all you need to do is add water and stir.  So it is great baking treat to do with an independent little man like Ted.

He pretty much did everything himself with a little help from Auntie Lo and he was so excited to see them bake in the oven. In fact he did sit outside and watch the oven like a TV for a while and at 5 minute intervals he shouted "Auntie Lo CAKES".

After a short 15 minutes we took our jigsaw of cookies out of the oven and let them cool down until they were ready to eat warm.

Teddie then got to bring them into Nanny and Grandad, play with his trains and promptly fall asleep with Grandad after all the tiring work.

Do you have any cool tips for mini men at Christmas time who like to do things for themselves?
