That isn't a cake or biscuits.

Want to do some fun cooking that feels like a treat/proper activity this holidays with the DC. They already help with standard meals quite a lot so are reasonably skilled (although small). Maybe something savoury but still feels treat like.

Pizza? Dd likes to make the dough and enjoys chopping and grating.

Pasties? Make shortcrust pastry from scratch.

If you buy filo pastry, samosas or Greek spanakopita are fun to make.

Naan or flatbreads are nice to do too.

Quesadillas - basically a wrap folded over, filled with cheese and nice bits and cooked in a dry non-stick pan until the cheese melts.

Look on Pinterest for the the twisted dough sticks in a star surrounding baked Brie. It’s fab!
How old are the children, what sort of things have they done before?

Those open tarts on a sheet of flaky pastry.
Houmous or guac in the magimix
My kids used to like rolling meatball mixture into balls
