Breadmen Bakeoff!

Last Wednesday, Ulla, from German Dolls posted a "Breadman Bakeoff" on the NaturalKids Blog...Our family was so inspired to make these little guys! We spent the day on Sunday baking.

We pretty much followed the recipe, maybe using a little more flour during the kneeding and rolling portion. I will try soaking the raisins next time and maybe add more lemon and honey instead of sugar. Such a tasty recipe - you can find it here!
Here are our creations...

Kiah, age 8, made the top row - (from left to right is a pregnant mama with a belly and bubbas to boot, a faerie with wings, and a breadman).

Milo, almost 5, made the bottom row - (from left to right is a turtle, mr. breadman, and a ghost).

Come play a game of Hide-n-Seek!

Where is the Mystery Gnome?

Starting Monday, November 17, the NaturalKids Team from Etsy is inviting folks to play a little game of hide-n-seek...

FaeRebecca has the best description of the game on the NaturalKids blog site
