Milk Tart Spring Rolls

Milk Tart Spring Rolls

Milk Tart is a favourite dessert in our house. The crust with the milky filling, sprinkled in cinnamon, not only smells good, but it tastes awesome. When I came across this recipe for Milk Tart Spring Rolls, the boys begged me to give them a go. I have never used spring roll pastry before, so I wasn't exactly sure how it was going to work out. We did find that the milky filling in the above recipe was not as sweet as the filling I usually make for the milk tart, so I used the filling I normally use when I make a milk tart, which we found sweeter.   … {Read More}

Monday Memory Verse: Psalm 147:4

Psalm 147:4

In each pack there is an A4 poster with the verse on it. This can be printed on white paper or card stock, laminate if you wish, and place in an area in which it will be read quite frequently like: on the fridge door in your child’s bedroom on the back of the toilet door in your ‘school room’ or play room To help your child, you could get them to look at the poster, read it 3 times and then get them to turn around so that their back is facing the poster.

Wanted Posters

Wanted Posters

For our bushranger unit, we decided to make Wanted Posters. To make these Wanted Posters, you will need: white A4 paper tea bag warm water black marker photo candle/matches To make these posters, the boys poured some warm water into a small bowl and then added a tea bag. They let the tea bag sit for a short time and then rubbed the tea bag over the A4 sheets of paper. I had the paper resting on a tea towel as they did it, so the liquid wouldn't go all over the table. To make the 'darker' patches, they dipped the tea bag in the water and squeezed it onto the paper. These pages … {Read More}
