Teddy Bears Picnic
We had Little B’s first food related event at kindy last week. The children had a teddy bears picnic and they all iced a teddy bear biscuit and then decorated them with sprinkles.
So I made faux gingerbread cookies and used a similar teddy bear cookie cutter. Then used some allergy friendly sprinkles by Nemar. The sprinkles were such a hit that the kindy will now only buy this brand as they don’t have any nasty colours, gluten or dairy in them.
But I’m very happy to report that Little B didn’t think his biscuit was any different to the others. Also the teachers were fantastic at explaining the biscuit beforehand just in case the other children noticed.
I’m very proud of the way they handled it and it reassured me that we had picked a good kindy for Little B to attend. I stayed and helped out as this was the first time they had done something food related with Little B and it was great fun (twenty 3 year olds playing with icing and sprinkles – there were a few that preferred to lick the very messy tables rather than ice the biscuits LOL) ☺
