Hansel and Gretel’s sweet house!

As part of our ‘Germany week’, we have been reading Hansel and Gretel – see my post on books for Germany week. My 4yo loves the idea of the sweet house they come across in the forest, and so absolutely jumped at the idea of being able to make his own. He was less thrilled that I told him he couldn’t eat it all at once!

For this activity, I laid out some biscuits, chocolate, sprinkles, sweets and icing. And then I let his creative juices flow! He was very much the master, and I only assisted when asked.

The result isn’t bad!


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
