Make Your Own Play Food

Kids love role play games and play food gives you a wealth of different scenarios to explore from a shop to a café to a picnic in the park.

You can buy play food of course but making your own is fun and if you get the kids involved they will enjoy creating something that they can use in their games later.

If you have a picky eater it just might help encourage them to try something new.

We have chosen projects that you can make along side your children, some that you can make for them to play with and some that they will be able to tackle on their own.

Don’t rush out and buy new materials to make your play food with … have a look and see what you’ve got in the cupboard first as you might be able to use something you already have instead.

If you are making salt dough remember you can use the cheapest flour that you can find.

Scroll down the page to check out all the foods …
there were too many to feature in our compilation photo.

April Fools

April Fools Day this week and we’ve listed some major pranks that have had thousands fooled.   Some children love being the ‘victims’ of such high jinks, other’s not so much and those kids can go into major sulks – which can be just as funny. We’d love to hear you’r April Fool Stories – might give us some inspiration for next year.


Mother's Day

Mother’s Day

Mothers Day at Children's Rooms

Being a mum isn’t for every one but for those of us who do have babies it’s the beginning of a wild roller coaster ride of extreme highs and lows as you guide your child through their first years and give them the best start in life that you can.

My mum still has a collection of dubious nick nacks that we bought with our own pennies for her Mother’s Day gifts and she has always maintained it’s not how much you spend … it’s the thought that counts. I can understand that better now that I am a mum because gifts my little one has chosen are extra special. I have a huge stone on my desk to illustrate this point and a bag of leaves that were described as “playground treasure”.

What ever you have bought for your mum on Mother’s Day make time for her as well. In today’s busy world days can fly by and before we know it we haven’t seen our mum for a week, maybe two. We’re lucky to have our mums so make the most of yours.

Pancakes

Pancake Day

Are you savoury or sweet?. Do you make your own from scratch to keep in with the traditions of pancake day or do you go for ease and buy the readymade ones or the batter in a bottle!

Pancake day (or shrove Tuesday) is the day before Ash Wednesday which is the first day of Lent. The day changes annually depending on when Easter is. It falls 47 days before Easter Sunday.

Shrove comes from the word “shrive” which means to confess. This tradition is observed by many Christian Faiths where people usually indulge themselves in foods that aren’t allowed during lent. This comprises of daily products hence the use of butter and eggs.
Another tradition for lent is to give up something you enjoy for the period which lasts 6 1/2 weeks, this could be chocolate or alcohol or some other rich food. It is a time for Christians to prepare for Easter and think about what they have done wrong or what they can confess to.

Other Countries all celebrate the day but in different ways , here are a few:
In Brazil it is called Fat Tuesday and marks the end of the Brazilian Carnival
In Greece it’s called Apocreas (meaning from the meat) as they do not eat meat during Lent
France celebrate Mardi Gras (this is also celebrated in the USA in Catholic and French speaking parts)
Sweden celebrate Fettisdagen (Fat Tuesday)
Iceland has Sprengidagur (Bursting day)

One of the fun aspects of pancake day for children and adults is the tossing of the pancake. Can the pancake be tossed perfectly so it lands on the uncooked side. Peppa Pig has an episode devoted to pancake day where daddy pig tosses the pancake and it sticks to the roof (I wonder how many homes this is a reality).

In the UK some towns have pancake races, this was said to have originated on Olney, Buckinghamshire when one housewife was so busy making pancakes that she forgot the time and when she heard the church bells ringing she raced to the church while still carry the frying pan with the pancake still in it. In this town there is still a pancake race that has been held since 1445, there are strict rules where contestants have to toss the pancake at both start and finishing lines and have to be dressed in an apron and scarf, even the men .

So whatever you are doing in your house or town enjoy your pancakes and hope there aren’t too many pancakes stuck to ceilings.
