We went on a wonderful field trip this morning. Our local bakery does a terrific tour for the kiddos. They read a story, Little Red Hen of course. Then they got to see how the bakery grinds their own flour, the huge mixing bowls used for kneading the dough, the large rotating oven and the noisy loaf slicer. The kids were all given a ball of dough to knead themselves and the baker demonstrated how they form their Easter bunny loaves. After that we ate our fill of tons of samples. Yumm! It was a big hit. We were also sent home with seeds to sprout our own wheat. If we take the sprouted wheat back to the bakery we get a free loaf of bread… how cool is that!
