Each week, I have been trying to get G in the kitchen to have fun and make something yummy. She loves to help and this gives her an opportunity to do so. It also gives us an opportunity to work on various skills. This week we made brownies in a snow storm.
We had on hand some of that brownie mix that you just pour water in to and shake. Yes, I know not gourmet brownies, but boy did we have fun shaking it! We sang:
“Shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake
Shake your brownies!
Shake your brownies!”
By the end of this exercise, G knew the word brownie and was singing right along with me.
When they came out of the oven, G sprinkled mini marshmallows on top of the still warm brownies and D pressed them down. You could then put them back in the oven for a few minutes to melt the marshmallows or place them under the broiler for a few minutes to brown them, if you like.
Viola! Brownies in a Snowstorm!
