Books, Learning Through Play

“I Love Chocolate”; Messy Kitchen with the Girls!

HBL = Making chocolate truffles!

Since it was full home based learning and stuck at home, I headed to the book shelves for some ideas to engage the girls. Pulled out “I Love Chocolate” written by Davide Calì and illustrated by Evelyn Daviddi; originally written in Italian and translated to English as part of Singapore based publisher, Epigram Books’, Stories from Around the World Series.

This book was part of a mystery pack I ordered for the girls for Children’s Day a few years ago and usually sits on the book shelf without much of our viewing attention. The story got me craving for some chocolates and I decided to get the girls involve in making some chocolate truffles!

Adapted an easy and simple chocolate truffles recipe from (https://www.recipetineats.com/chocolate-ganache-truffles/) and so the story of the messy kitchen begins.

I asked younger GEM which part she enjoyed the most… EATING them! I totally agree! Now I need to go clean up the kitchen!
