Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Halloween Treats…

Hopefully today my Twitter feed – and later tonight this blog post – will be full of photos of my baking exploits with Little Man. I’m not overly optimistic – its been that kind of week and he’s being 4 with impeccable skill – but we’ll see what mood he woken up in. I hope to be making an array of Halloween goodies – biscuits, cupcakes and a traybake if things go really well. We were sent a hamper of Nestle bits and pieces last week to help us create something ghoulish as well as a few recipes for inspiration. If things go well, we’ll be making this later today.

Squeamish Squares:Halloween2014
150g Shredded Wheat
6 x Yorkie Bars
50g White Marshmallows
200g Golden Syrup
1 pack of Strawberry Laces
1 pack of Jelly Tots
1 bag of Milky Bar Buttons

Grease & line a 20cm square tin. Melt the Yorkie bars and Golden Syrup in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. In another bowl mix the Shredded Wheat, 1/2 the Jelly Tots and the Strawberry Laces together. Stir in the chocolate syrup mixture. Pour into the tin and chill for at least an hour in the fridge. Once set remove from the tin and cut into bite sized pieces. Drizzle over some melted buttons and scatter over the remaining Jelly Tots before it sets.

So its not going to be the healthiest thing ever, but it certainly sounds like it’ll meet the creepy quota with all the worms and bugs lurking. I also like the sound of this as there’s no real cooking involved apart from the early melting, so its pretty child friendly. Definitely my best hope with the feral four year old I seem to have in my midst this week. Half term is nearly over with yes?
