Pizza Art

It's no secret that kids like pizza, and they like it even more when they make it themselves.  Children love to exercise a little bit of control over their lives, which are generally governed by big people, and what better way than choosing what to eat... within reason of course.

When we make pizzas as a family, we put what they can eat out on the bench-top and then let them pick and choose from our selection.  I call it 'the art of controlled choice,' and I've blogged about it before when the girls were making a pretend-pond on a mat.

If you want to have pizza too, set a good example and rather than just scattering the ingredients on top of your pizza, show them how easy it is to turn a pizza base into a canvas, and craft a face, landscape or treasure map.  Be sure to set an even better example and EAT what you make.

Best wishes for Halloween everybody - have fun and don't eat too much candy!

Thanks Ladies - and yes, i try to be a fun-mum... but sometimes 'being fun' is too much hard work and I just stick on a DVD to give myself a moment's peace and then I serve up toast for dinner... only difference is I don't blog about it!... oops - I just did! x
