I am a big fan of using as many different media as possible in art work. The more unusual the better.
Today’s geography group was West Yorkshire and focused on Pontefract – Liquorice Town according to our book. Turns out I am the only one to like Pontefract cakes. However, they had more fun playing with making liquorice pictures than they’d had with the eating.
House by me – yes I do forget this is for the kids at times.
Then to mark Halifax as well and despite being the only adult in the house, we made a very simple toffee, with limited success. Edible but very sticky – was only sugar and water we were dubious at best. Special award goes to my friend who did not panic when she returned to find me dangling her 3 yo over the hob so he could have a go at stirring boiling sugar!
