What to do with all that freshly grated nutmeg? Our Kindergarten class, which is studying Colonial times, made a delicious bread today from the book Goody O'Grumpityby Carol Ryrie Brink (Goody O'Grumpity's Spice Cake recipe is included in the back). Every single person who walked through the kitchen of the school today said the exact same thing, MMMM, it smells so good in here. We had slices of the cake for dessert.
Another wonderful book that I picked up while wandering through the Kindy classroom is Eight Hands Round: A Patchwork Alphabet
This book is perfectly suited to a study of Colonial times and would work easily into a sewing unit on Quilting as well.
