A great activity to do around a story is The Gingerbread Man why not make great Gingerbread Men as well as make some play dough where the children can rein act the story or make your own gingerbread men and story characters out of paper!

Recipe - Everything Fried Rice

By Raising Children Network

For something different, you can serve this nutritious fried rice in Asian-style bowls with spoons.

Serves 4everything fried rice.jpg
Preparation: 10 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins

2 tbsp oil
2 eggs, lightly whisked
100 gm green prawns, peeled, de-veined and chopped (optional)
1 carrot, grated
1 stick celery, finely chopped
1/4 Chinese cabbage, shredded
2 cups cooked long grain rice
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp tomato sauce

1. Heat a wok or large frying pan over medium to high heat. Add half the oil and pour in whisked eggs. Turning the wok in a swirling motion, run egg around the sides of the pan to make a thin omelette. When cooked, turn omelette out onto a board, roll up, and cut into thin slices.
2. Reheat wok, and add remaining oil. Cook prawns in batches until cooked through and prawns change colour. Remove from wok and set aside.
3. Reheat wok. Add carrot and celery, and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes. Add cabbage, stirring for a further 2 minutes.
4. Add rice, prawns, peas, soy sauce and tomato sauce to the wok. Toss until combined and heated through.
5. Spoon into serving bowls and top with sliced egg.

Tip: if your children don't eat prawns, try this recipe with chicken strips or tofu instead. Older children might want to try using chopsticks to eat their fried rice. Keep a fork handy just in case.
