Flying Start @ Helston Bake Chocolate Brownies!

Flying Start @ Helston Bake Chocolate Brownies!

After their recent trip into town to the local bakery, the toddler department at Flying Start @ Helston decided to have a go themselves, and bake some delicious treats!

They discussed all their favourite types of treats and decided that chocolate brownies were the best…

So they mixed up all the ingredients carefully in a big bowl, and all had a go at stirring it and mixing it all up together… then the staff took them off to the hot oven, and they could all smell the delicious smell as they cooked!

Then they got to all take a piece home to have after their tea!

A BIG thank you to Joshua’s dad for coming in and telling the children all about hisamazing job… they were fascinated & listened so carefully!
