15 minutes Craft planner

Beware of allergies – make sure it is safe for the children in your group to handle and taste the food used in this activity

You will need:
2 x white part-baked French baguettes (approx. 25 cm in length)
A round cake tin (approx. 20cm in diameter)
4oz of cheese        
Optional – a pinch of dried mixed herbs
Butter or low fat spread
A plate
Dinner knives        
Cheese grater
A plate
Chopping board

How to prepare:
Before the session cook the part-baked French baguettes. Wipe the surfaces in your teaching area and place the ingredients and utensils somewhere accessible.

How to make:
1. Encourage your group to wash their hands thoroughly.
2. Grease the sides of the cake tin.
3. Place the bread on the chopping board and help the children to use the dinner knives to carefully cut the baguettes into pieces approximately 3 cm in length.
4. Spread a little butter or low fat spread onto one end of each of the pieces.
5. Place the pieces of bread in the cake tin with their buttered ends facing downwards. Squeeze the pieces into the tin so that there are no large gaps and the pieces are unable to move.
6. If you are using dried herbs encourage the children to sprinkle a small amount onto the bread. 
7. Grate the cheese onto a plate. Allow the children to sprinkle the cheese over the surface of the bread.
8. Cook following the instructions below.

An adult will need to cook the bread
Bake the bread at 210°C/gas mark 6 for about 15–20 minutes or until the cheese is golden-brown and cooked through.  
BEWARE the bread will be very hot when first removed from the oven. Make sure it has cooled before giving it to the children.
If it is appropriate for your setting, serve the tear and share bread to the children and adults after the session. Encourage people to tear off a portion of bread from the edge.
