Spend time in the kitchen together, bake and cook and invite friends and family for tea!
apple_cake
Our favourite recipe is the easy peasy but oh so tasty Norwegian Apple Cake! Use the apple peeling to start your sourdough, and soon you’ll be baking bread too. So much fun to be had in the kitchen. And nothing tastes better than what you’ve made yourself. Allow the children to measure, mix, stir and make a complete mess this half term.

Harvest what nature has to offer and go creative, make Autumn decoration perfect for Halloween.
autumn_decoration
Bring nature in! Leafs, conkers and branches will make beautiful decoration for your home this Autumn. Leave puddles to fill up in the rain, and head indoors for a creative session together. Decorate empty jars or flew leafs to paper -they’ll make beautiful displays of the most colourful season.

And talking about seasons… Tick Tock, remember to turn the clock back on Sunday. Winter time is coming!
