Bread Baking!

In Ms. McAuley’s Children’s House the children have taken biscuit-making by storm. Ingredients are gathered and mixed, the dough is kneaded, biscuits formed and baked. This work is worthwhile on so many levels from strengthening the hand to supporting functional independence, but the smell alone makes the endeavor worth the effort!

Take a look … and be inspired to do some baking at home with your family!

Ingredients are gathered and added to the bowl.

Everything is carefully mixed together.

Scraping the spoon to get all the dough possible to work with!

Kneading…

Cutting out the biscuits.

Biscuits are then baked (with adult help!) and are ready to be enjoyed. Thank you Ms. McAuley for sharing your biscuit making lesson with us!

Thank you Melinda for sharing your photos which so perfectly tell the story of baking in the Children’s House.
