After an hour or so at the playground, we went back up and had a thorough hand-washing for everyone before rolling out the dough and adding our favourite toppings.

Pizza-making with the Cousins – Part 2: Play Break!

We left the dough to rise and went downstairs to play. I love that they are at that age where they can navigate the playground on their own without very much help from us.

Pizza-making with the Cousins – Part 1: Just Dough It!

Selena hosted a pizza-making session at her place last Wednesday and the kids made pizza from scratch! They started with the dough and It was a little bit chaotic making sure they were all equally involved but it wasn’t as messy as I had expected it to be.
