Cooking and baking is something I do a lot with the boys. I cooked with my mum growing up and a lot of the skills I have are all down to her. Cooking and baking is great for children as it teaches them lots and lots of new skills including measuring and weighing (you can even add conversion in), time measurement and management. Plus I am a great believer in home made and home cooked.
One of the things we like baking is simple cookies and this is a variation on that theme using Cadbury pebbles as the added yum factor. If you love smarties and mini eggs then you will love cadburys pebbles, they are yummy cadbury chocolate covered in a christy hard shell and come in yellow, grey and purple. The boys love them as does MadDad.
