    That is the coolest thing ever! What a great idea. LM will have so much fun making (and eating) loaves by herself in no time. Very cute!

    Sounds excellent! Must get some for rainy day indoors.

    @V Sometimes, Little Sister, you need to read properly before you make a comment! Nope, you don’t need the breadmaker and I certainly will put yourself and Little Missy at work with the kit. You’re stuck with a heart or a circle, though. No ‘tar any more 🙁

    @Katrina I bet Lucas would love the chance to get his hands on bread dough as well. I had lots of fun to get the picture of LM with the “dough, dough, dough” – she kept wanting to cuddle it. I think she was quite proud of the loaf!

    @Gillian a perfect rainy day activity and, as dough doesn’t taste too good, there’s less chance of your own HoneyB eating it before it gets into the tin. Little Missy is a devil with doing that if I’m using pastry but the bread dough seemed to get less attention that way.

  5. LOL, glad I am not the only ejit who did not take the (toxic when melted) plastic shaper out of it. Worse I ignored the advice of my daughter.They are a great idea.keith

    Not just me then! Sounds like your daughter had a better grasp of the instructions than you did. And we had even watched the video as well although, I have to say, that was before Christmas…

    This looks fantastic, will defo investigate, my 3.5 year old and 22 month old are really into helping in the kitchen.Just to mention also, not sure how you’re fixed for space in the cottage but we invested in a fantastic item called a Funpod when my DD was small (and now we have two of them). She had a bad fall off a kitchen chair when she was up at the counter one day and someone recommended this and we haven’t looked back. They are around 100 euro which is actually less than the cost of a trip to A&E so a good investment I reckon! I got mine through an Irish site, but I think they might have them on amazon now as well.

    That looks really interesting, Catherine. Unfortunately my kitchen is too small to even fit a regular kitchen chair but I have a small stool that Little Missy stands on to just get her head over the counter. I’m not sure the access she’d get from anything higher would be a good idea just yet!
