Crafts with the Kids


 What You Will Need:

A kitchen towel roll

Coloured paper


Bright paint


1. Take a kitchen towel roll and paint it in a bright colour, then wait for it to dry.

2. Cut out a semi-circle piece of coloured paper and curl it round to make a cone and Sellotape to hold in place then Sellotape to the top of the kitchen roll.

3. Cut out strips of coloured tissue paper and glue them on to the bottom edge of the roll for flames.

4. There you go! A magical bonfire rocket!



 What You Will Need:

10 Wooden skewers (or lolly sticks)

10 Apples

350g Brown sugar

2 Teaspoons white wine vinegar

35g Unsalted English butter

2 tablespoons golden syrup

Sprinkles of your choice



1. Insert a wooden skewer or lolly stick into the stalk end of each apple. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.

2. Put the sugar in a heavy-based pan with 120ml cold water and heat gently, stirring until it dissolves. Bring to the boil and add the vinegar, butter and golden syrup. Boil gently for 12 minutes, until it has reached the soft-crack stage (138°C on a sugar thermometer, or the point at which a little of the mixture, dropped into cold water, forms threads that bend slightly before breaking).

3. 3. Dip the bottom two-thirds of the apple in the toffee, turning to coat. Working quickly, get the children to add sprinkles, stars or biscuit crumbs to each apple. Leave to set on the baking parchment for 15 minutes.
