tweetkids workshop: heartwarming hot chocolate

Once again, a simple, but highly successful recipe today, heartwarming hot chocolate. It might be March but the cold, wet and wintery weather is still with us. The rain has set in for a week, so they say, so we made a sweet warm drink with medicinal effect – hot chocolate!

Ingredients: cocoa powder, sugar, milk and water. We mixed all the ingredients in a saucepan, ready to be heated on the stove. Cocoa is bitter, especially for young tastebuds, so the sugar content of our hot chocolate was pretty high.

While we waited for our hot chocolate to cool down, we played Kim’s Game. The game develops a person’s capacity to observe and remember details. The name is derived from Rudyard Kipling’s 1901 novel Kim, in which the hero, Kim, plays the game during his training as a spy. We trained our eyes and English with zoo and farm animals, with each child taking turns to remove items from a tray for the other children to guess the missing animals.

We had a great teatime, devouring our velvety chocolate drink, with biscuits of course!
