With the kids now off school in these extraordinary times, keeping them entertained and continuing their learning will be of upmost importance. Whatever their age, cooking can offer so much to all children from skills in mathematics and reading as well as teaching valuable life skills.
We have a wide range of recipe ideas to cook with your children to help increase their confidence in the kitchen and get them enjoying some tasty Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef.
And once they’re done please share their creations with us through our social media channels!
When they are not in the kitchen we also have a number of fun activities all centred on learning about farming within Wales and where our food comes from. Take a look at the links below where we’ve split our activities up to cater for 4-7 year olds and 8-11 year olds so children of all ages can enjoy learning about life on a farm. From word searches and spot the difference to educational stories there’s hours of fun and learning to be had with farmer Siôn, his sheepdog sidekick Meg and all their friends.
