Simple recipes for kids :: choc chip flapjack

I love having a stash of simple recipes for kids on hand for when the children want to do some baking. This choc chip flapjack recipe is a really great one for kids to try. It’s quick and easy to make, uses ingredients you probably have to hand (or at least available the local store) and it lets children practise lots of practical kitchen and maths skills. Oh, and did I mention it’s yummy?

No salt play dough recipe :: taste safe, gluten free sensory play

The BBC reported this week that homemade play dough can contain enough salt to poison children. It said no fatalities have been reported, but advised that children should be watched carefully when playing with any play dough. It didn’t offer any alternative recipes that contain little or no salt, and it didn’t say that play dough is an amazing sensory material that offers so much to children who have the opportunity to play with it.

Homemade play dough, used with thought, care and imagination, is perhaps the best childhood material there is, in my opinion. So, rather than feel scared that it might harm our children, and stop using it, let’s look at how amazing it is, and try a salt free play dough recipe.
