No Gruffalos were harmed in the making of this crumble

Kids at the Burgh Primary School were inspired to do some baking by one of their favourite book characters – the Gruffalo.

As you will probably know only too well, the Gruffalo isn’t the hero of his own story; that’s the little brown mouse who scares him off by threatening to turn him into Gruffalo Crumble. Cue much slicing, mixing and munching.

Reading recipes is a wonderful way to practice reading for kids who prefer to¬† be active. It’s also a fabulous way of encouraging them to try different foods.

If you want to try Gruffalo crumble there’s a main meal version on the Julia Donaldson website and a pudding on this smashing blog.

Here are some pics of the kids enjoying the cooking.
