I have my sons friend coming round tomorow to play for a few hours. We thought it would be nice to do some cooking. I was hoping to find some ideas of what they could cook. I was thinking brownies or cakes...
Needs to be quite simple


Hi - we had a 7 year old friend round yesterday for ds1 and a 5 year old friend of ds2's. We made fairy cakes and they decorated - needless to say I'm still finding bits of icing and hundreds and thousands scattered over the house but they seemed to enjoy doing it (for 10 minutes - then spent the other 4 hours tearing the house apart and doing complex GoGo and match attax swaps... hmm grin).

Pitta bread pizzas.

Spread pitta spreads with sundried tomato paste or red or green pesto. Then they can top them with what they fancy, sprinkle with cheese and eat with cherry toms and cucumber for their lunch.

Fairy cakes are good too. Do the mixing then they bugger off and play whilst they cook and cool. Then they come back to ice and sprinkle.

I have a breadmaker and do the dough in that for ds to bash around roll out.

He spreads a jar of tomato paste over it then I let him loose with onions and peppers and tomatoes and my pampered chef chopping thing.

Grated fingers cheese on top followed by 30mins in the oven.

Serve with with lots of ketchup salad

DD had a friend over last week, and they spent most of the day making Halloween biscuits. I used food colouring to make orange and black icing (also had some white, yellow and black), and they used sprinkles to decorate.

We ended up with a vast collection of pumpkins, black cats, ghosts, witches hats, etc. Red icing was used for 'blood' - they had alot of fun, and made a huge mess!
