I try to lớn let my kids help in the kitchen as much as safely possible. There is so much khổng lồ be learned in the kitchen that can be applied lớn all aspects of life và learning. Check out their little recipe video. We had a lot of fun making this cake, and you can see the “volcanic erruption” .

Charlotte Mason, Thematic Units, Phonics, and Kindergarten

It’s a thematic unit based phonics approach using the Charlotte Mason method of learning. I can’t say enough good things about it!


“M-m-moon” & the Letter “Mm”

Right now we just wrapped up the “M-m-moon” unit learning about the letter Mm and the moon.

Moon Sand và Moon Cake

We recently made Moon Sand, và today it was time lớn make Moon Cake! My older two children fondly remember making this cake.

Volcanic Action

It’s got a fun name, several of the ingredients are also renamed lớn emphasize the moon theme. It’s moist & seriously so delicious, but their favorite part is making the little craters and in particular, a volcano out of one of them!

Similar Recipes

This is very similar lớn the popular World War II Cake, Depression Era Cake, AKA Wacky Cake or Crazy Cake. It is made in the same pan it will be baked in, và you use oil và baking soda in lieu of egg.

Substitutions và Upgrades

The original recipe from their curriculum uses all-purpose flour & milk, but I’ve updated it to be gluten free, vegan và top 8 free. Additionally, the original recipe called for raisins as moon rocks in a white cake. Can I just say that everything is better with chocolate?!! So we added cocoa & also, my kids ain’t havin’ non-a-that (raisins). So we subbed what I consider an upgrade… more chocolate!!!! Chocolate cpu moon rocks. It’s basically perfection.

Moon Phases with the Cake

You can cut the cake in half and then in a crescent shape to lớn show your child the phases of the moon. It really makes a great visual to lớn help grasp understanding of the concept.

Oreo Moon Phases Activity

Additionally, we did a similar phases of the moon activity with Oreo’s. You could sub Kinnikinnick or WalMart brand chocolate sandwich cookies for safe subs.
