Special Weekend Task

Now is a great time to help out your grown ups in the kitchen and learn some cooking skills. I have been trying lots of new recipes while I have been at home. Here is a picture of some pancakes I made for breakfast!
Help your grown ups to cook something this weekend, it can be absolutely anything from making breakfast, dinner or even a cake! Don't forget to send me a picture and if you send me the recipe I might even try it for myself.
