Cooking with kids

My version of two minute noodles. Organic soba buckwheat noodles, with a little live miso stirred through. Beats those terrible additive filled noodles targeted at kids.

Alresco cooking. Sand cakes with pine cones, shells and stones. Yum yum !
Seems my crafting has slowed down, my boy is growing up, and we are happy radical unschoolers (with a touch of Waldorf and a pinch of Montessori thrown in) here in messyfish land.
I am currently working on an illustrated cook book for kids. I really can't reveal anything much about it yet. It's possible my blog may slow down for a while....
You can always email me if you miss us. See you in a little while xxx

"If we continually try to force a child to do what he is afraid to do, he will become more timid, and will use his brains and energy, not to explore the unknown, but to find ways to avoid the pressures we put on him."
~John Holt~, (1923-1985) American Educator, How Children Learn

Oh my. Your cook book project sounds intriguing. All mine love to cook. Prefer if they do it one at a time. Reduces the clear up time!
