Cheese Star Treats

Date: October 26, 2017 Author: Bumpkins Team Categories: Food Fun, Toddler Tips

Who doesn’t love star shaped things? These little cheese stars will go down well on Fireworks Night or can be made for Christmas too.
All you need is a sheet of ready made puff pasty (at room temperature), some grated cheese and a little flour to dust the work surface.
Encourage your child to wash their hands then unroll the pastry. Let your child sprinkle most of the cheese over half of the pastry sheet. You can use this opportunity to discuss what ‘half’ means. Support your child to fold the plain side of pastry over the cheesy side and use a rolling pin to roll the pastry back to its original size.
Now let your child cut out stars (or other shapes is you haven’t got a star cutter) of various sizes. It’s around the toddler stage that children begin to realise that tools can be used for a purpose. Encourage comparative language, bigger than, smaller than, biggest.
All that remains is for your child to place the stars carefully on baking sheets and sprinkle each one with the reserved cheese.
Pop them in the oven for 10 minutes at
200 ° c (180 ° c fan). Leave to cool and enjoy!
