Baking for Play School

As I have already blogged Ben’s Kindy hosted the Play School Concert.  Part of the role as hosts was to provide a simply morning tea for the cast and crew of seven people (including ALEX!!!).  I sat in the committee meeting listening to everyone talk about it for thirty minutes but no one volunteered to make it.  It was even suggested we buy something from Coles…!!!!  Well no one was going to feed the Play School Cast rubbish from Coles so I volunteered.  Another lady volunteered to provide a fruit platter.   I can bake but I am no genius baker.  My mother-in-law is the queen of baking!!  It was just a pitty she was overseas!!

Ben and I decided to bake our all time family favorite Kiwi Crisps (chocolate chunk cookies), Apple crumble muffins (a home made apple muffin with Bette’s Crumble) and Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies from my new cookbook. Ben helped me a little before he went to bed.  He loves to bake…. well he loves to steal the chocolate and eat it!!

I think the final product turned out ok.  If nothing else it looked good.  I didn’t hear of any food poisoning cases …..thank goodness!!!

Yesterday was our third Play School concert and it did not disappoint.   Alex and Emma took us on an adventure to Prince Big Ted’s castle.  Alex was just spectacular…. as always!

This year Ben’s Kindergarten hosted the concert.  It was our fundraiser…. YAY!!  What an amazing fundraiser.  Just another reason why I think Ben goes to the BEST Kindy!  Ben’s whole class went to the concert together.  Along with his wonderful teachers and many parent and grandparent helpers (Thanks Gamma!).  It was just so lovely.  Aunty Claire, Hugo and Evie along with Aunty Em, Ollie and Milla joined in the fun.

Ben enjoyed the concert this year – snuggled in my lap, laughing and listening (but no singing or dancing!!).  I sang and would have loved to get up and dance!  It is no secret that I LOVE PLAY SCHOOL.  I don’t think you can be an Early Childhood Teacher and not love it.  I really enjoyed sharing this experience with my little man – Big Ted, Jemima and Humpty.  It is just something so special.  He will probably never know what it meant to me but I will treasure it forever.  xoxoxo
