Cooking with little helpers is always fun. But I’m not going to pretend I have regular domestic goddess experiences where my four kids and I gather around the mixing bowl, happily taking turns to add ingredients. The reality is more like "He had three more stirs than I did!", as mixture flies across the kitchen. Nonetheless, the part that always pleases everyone is cutting out biscuit shapes.
We have a fair collection of biscuit cutters (heavy on the dinosaurs in a house with three little boys), but none as cute as these hands and feet cookie cutters from Aspace. Think what fun could be had making and decorating an edible little hand or foot.
Aspace specialises in nursery and children’s furniture and bedding, but they also have a great selection of gift items that will thrill even the choosiest kid. Check out the fab aeroplane that attaches to a bike handlebar and propels as you ride, the dinosaur origami kit for crafty kids, and ‘blow football’ that guarantees to have fathers and sons locked in combat for days.
All of these items are under £4.50 each. Aspace delivers to Australia by arrangement.
