Vegan Banana Cup Cakes

Updated: Aug 22, 2020

At Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, we immerse the children in as many learning activities as time permits. One of these activities is cooking. They love to cook...they love to be involved in something....at times anything.. and they love to eat.

What better reason to love cooking!!!

Through cooking they learn how to follow instructions and how to take turns along with basic cooking skills. The children also discuss health and wellness as they chatter along between themselves during the process.

The best part of course is ....Licking the bowl!!!
