Such a fun afternoon playing with marzipan and many colours!

As I horrified them all by making them watch Food, Inc. this morning, playing with dough in the sunshine was a good way to end our first week together.  


  1. Some real artists in that group. Whomever did the fruit really is very good, and the pumpkins/squashes are nice as well. I think our paste was warmer than yours, thus dryer; was probably best for two-dimensional leaves, but would have been challenging for tiny hamburgers.

    1. The fruits were all made by The teacher. She's been doing this for 40 years~she learned to make marzipan because her mother-in-law loves it.
