Project 191: Home economics

As lockdown restrictions started to lift, and visitors started visiting, it was time for a (late) spring clean and to get the children more involved in helping out around the house with some cleaning, weeding, and more cooking. 

As well as the usual cooking activities....

... we wanted the children to think more about the costs of things, and they were each given the task of coming up with a family meal with £10 at the local Lidl.

They also had to create their own menus. 

Taking responsibility for one of the family meals turned out to be a very popular activity, and they'll now take it in turns to go shopping for one meal each week. 

Next project: The Indian in the Cupboard
