What's my Nan's coffee and walnut cake got to do with Solving World Problems One Child At A Time?
From a young age, I encouraged my children to collect recipes and write and draw about them. It's more than just the ingredients it's often the stories in the mixture.
We don't particularly sit round fires telling stories so much now do we? It occurs to me that many of us have lost the art of story telling and the value in them.
I know that it's important for children to hear about their heritage and family successes and failures as they learn from them too. Often, it touches their hearts and minds and can create a deep emotional response.
I remember baking this coffee and walnut cake with my Nan, the experience inspired my enjoyment of baking too.
These shared moments and conversations form the foundations for our children's success and resilience in life and may even help them solve world problems!
Below is our GRANdom Dialogue from yesterday.
