On Friday, we enjoyed making peppermint cream sweets as a gift to take home! Here is the recipe we used:

1.  Add 450g of icing sugar with 4 tablespoons of condensed milk.  Mix until you have a smooth paste.

2.  Add 1 teaspoon of peppermint essence to the paste and mix.

3.  Add 1 teaspoon of green food colouring ( or split in half leaving one half white)

4.  Knead and roll out.  Make into little balls or cut into shape desired.

5. Put in fridge to harden.

Sinterklaas!

Standard

On December 6th, we celebrated ‘Sinterklaas’ day with Perrine.   Sinterklaas is Flemish for St. Nicholas’ day.  She baked cookies for everyone and explained the tradition of ‘Sinterklaus’ in Belgium.  We thoroughly enjoyed the cookies and the story-thank you Perrine!

Christmas activities!

Standard

Over the Christmas period, we enjoyed lots of activities. 

We created an Advent calendar to count down the days to Christmas.  Each day we were required to carry out an act of kindness.  We each had an Advent friend who we were especially kind to over the Advent period!
