Making kai together can be fun and educational.

Why do it?

  • Home is the first learning place and the whānau are the first teachers a child has.
  • A young child doesn’t always need special learning activities. Simple everyday household activities and routines can provide learning experiences in a familiar environment.
  • Having someone who loves them caring and nurturing them is exactly what they need, as it gives them a sense of belonging.
  • By learning what adults do, children learn these skills too.

How to do it

You’ll need: A muffin tin, 12 slices of wholemeal bread (crusts removed), your favourite fillings (see below) and some grated cheese.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C, grease your tin and press in your bread slices.
  2. Evenly spoon in your favourite fillings:
    • Spag-tom nom nom: Mix a chopped tomato and a can of spaghetti.
    • Eggy-licious: Beat 2 eggs with 1/2 a cup of milk, then add cooked veggies and maybe some ham.
    • Mince or beans: What a yummy way to use your leftovers!
  3. Top with grated cheese then bake for 15 minutes.

Tip: Cool for a few minutes before serving.
