Castles have been the theme in our house for the last couple of weeks. Both boys love exploring them and our eldest has been enjoying drawing different castles. We have also been learning all about their features and the varied history of each one we have visited. The last castle we explored was Blackness Castle beside the Firth of Forth, it was a gorgeous day despite the strong winds!
The following day when I asked them what they would like to bake this week, the answer was ‘castle biscuits’. So that is exactly what we had to do. Of course these biscuits can be cut into any shape you like, but we have gone for castle shapes. Well, castles and a few palaces for Elsa to live in.
These biscuits are easily made by the kids and my boys loved wearing their new Arty Apple aprons. They are personalised aprons in a soft blue denim.
Each apron has their name and a picture of either a cake or gingerbread man embroidered on the front. I have removed all but the first letters of their names off the pictures as I don’t mention their entire names here.
The aprons have coordinating neck and waist ties and easy for the kids to put on over their heads. My two were rather excited about their aprons and wanted to wear them all day! Unfortunately they were a bit too floury for playing in.
