While the shops are still open (in the UK) I thought I would post this gift my girls put together for their Uncle who likes to watch a movie or two – incase you have forgotten someone or need to throw a small giftette together for after Christmas…
They put together little seasoning bags using recipes gleaned from the internet: Tex Mex, Hot Cocoa, Lemon Poppy and Sesame Salt, then wrote out the recipes before putting it all in a ziploc bag and wrapping it.
We saved some seasoning for ourselves, obviously. Roll on movie night!
I found the recipe for these in my local Morrison’s magazine and swapped the lolly stick for a peppermint candy cane
They took an hour or so to do but I got enough out of less than £15 spend to give one to each of my 25 Guides plus 7 Senior Section as a Christmas token and still have one left over for me 😀
warm the pot in warm water for a short while, pop them out and put into hot milk for a delicious hot minty marshmallowey chocolate drink.
Quite some time ago now I took another Art session with Year 4. This time the theme was Stonehenge and its mysterious use.
We looked at light and dark, shadows and how they create atmosphere and, finally, Stonehenge itself as both an historic place and a series of shapes.
We communally drew the example – I wielded the charcoal and chalk, the children gave the instruction and then they got on with their own.
I was very impressed with the outcomes and they now adorn the classroom walls, mounted individually on black, not far from the cave painting.
