Last year we celebrated it with lots of fun activities like the ice experiment or the 3 Ps: pompoms, patterning and painting.
And this year...
I had very little time to prepare for our national holiday so I took the easy way and downloaded/printed/laminated an absolutely fantastic collection of activities from gyereketeto.hu
Here are the activities I prepared:
E. started with the pre-writing practice:
Then she read (!!!) the questions herself concerning the sheet in front of her (like Which is the biggest cockade? or How many flags turn left?)
|Clearly you can see she was enjoying it|
What you need (5-7 cookies):
1 tube (150gr) sweetened condensed milk here you can read about the difference between condensed and evaporated milk- something that I myself have just learnt)
80-100 gr grated coconut
food colouring (in our case red and green)
(In the original recipe the proportions are double)
How to prepare it:
We mix the evaporated milk and the coconut so we get a playdoh-like texture. (Well, we did not unfortunately. We need to make it again to experiment with the proportions)
|We've learnt a new expression: evaporated milk|
Take the one third of the remaining white mixture and add the green food colouring.
Make green balls and place them on baking paper (on a tray).
|Yes, yes... that is Baby Sister on me in a sling|
Pre-heat the oven at 150 Celsius degrees and dry the cookies out within 15-20 minutes. (We had a problem with this because after 10 minutes they got a little brown. So I turned the oven down to 100 degrees and let them stay in for another 5 minutes)
|A little over-baked still tasted nice|
Of course, we spent our time in Hungarian and E. learnt quite a few words, some international like huszár and csákó :)
