Fun Bread Snails

Bread Snails

So we’re entering rainy season here and it is something that Wellington does really, really well! It also means that the paths on the way to school are busy with snails. Luckily Max has grown out of the need to move each one to safety ….

I was making bread and decided to roll up some snails. The boys love home-made bread and when I have a bit of extra time I prefer it too as it contains nothing but whole-wheat flour, yeast and water. It is an intimidating prospect if you haven’t made before but is actually really simple. Bread snails are a great one for kids to make themselves as they’re such a simple shape.
