Go Eat Dirt! Mud Pie Puddings

Kids will absolutely love creating this garden-themed pudding which we found on the No Time For Flash Cards website.

Everybody knows kids love playing with dirt, and this recipe is not just great fun but a delicious treat. Using bits of pudding or mousse and some minibeast sweets, kids can play in the mud and eat it too!

Make sure you get kids out to play with real mud too, but that they don't eat it that time!

There are very clear step-by-step photos to help you make your dessert and why not try adding your own favourite ingredients too!






You can find the recipe here.

We have also seen versions using crushed up Special K type cereals - especially good are the ones with the berries as you get little flakes of chewy red in the coating. You can use a pes...

Celery Stalk Rose Prints This is a lovely idea I saw on Maureen Cracknell's Homemade site. It's a cute thing to do next time you have a recipe which needs a whole head of celery in one go and therefore you cut off the stump rather than peeling individual stalks, or you can do the same with a head of crunchy lettuce. So next time you have one of those recipes, get your paints out and let your kids make some pretty art or some greetings cards. The original is h...

Egg Herb Garden This is a fun way to grow a small herb garden, which would make a sweet gift from a child to a cook in their family. The infographic below shows you all the steps you need to know, the main thing is to take the top off carefully so you may want to help children with this or take the top off before they get started. Large plants will obviously need transplanting - this one features a tomato which would need potting on. But chives, basil, thyme, parsley,...
