I really enjoy how Mother Goose Time includes two or more recipes each month. It reminds me the importance of getting X in the kitchen AND gives us a fun and simple recipe to do together. They really get creative and go beyond my go to’s like having him peel eggs or chop vegetables.
When we were discussing Italian artists we recieved a neat recipe for spaghetti sauce. I put whole stewed tomatoes in a zip top bag and X squished them until they were all broken up. This was great for working his hand muscles (hand strength is an important first step to writing)! I took it a step further and had him rip up basil leaves to sprinkle on top. Mother Goose Time recipes always keep it simple and healthy. I almost always have all the ingredients on hand.
This week we’ve been studying French artists. Today our recipe was crepes! Crepes are thin, egg pancakes that can contain sweet or savory fillings. X cracked the eggs, measured and poured the ingredients and mixed it all up. He was working on hand strength, hand eye coordination, math and building focus. I cooked them and rolled them up with ham and cheese. We made dessert with the leftover crepes by filling them with fried cinnamon apples. It was a fun recipe to whip up together and since they only need to cook for 1-2 minutes per side, they were also quick! X was so proud to help make a lunch that we all really enjoyed.
Here’s a peek at the recipe if you’d like to try these tasty treats with your kids!
