A simple recipe for developing your child's fine motor skills and creating a tasty appetizer.

Shopping list
  • 1 Puff pastry roll
  • 50 gr Raw ham
  • 50 gr Ricotta cheese
  • Sesame seeds

Spread the ricotta on the puff pastry, trying to cover every space.

Cover the ricotta layer with slices of raw ham, trying not to overlap the slices

The adult cuts strips of pasta about 2 cm wide with a knife or you can use the wheel-knife and have it done by the child.
The activity of rolling up the strips on themselves to create breadsticks will engage the children a lot.

The movement requires a lot of coordination between the two hands, it is a complex activity and it is not said that the child is able to understand well the movements to be done. You can then look for an alternative closer to the child's skills to avoid the frustration of not being successful.

We have opted to roll the dough on the cutting board, the result is similar and within reach of even small children. Finding an alternative way is not simply to avoid the problem how to train the problem solving of the child.

The child can sprinkle the sesame seeds on the breadsticks paying attention to the fact that if the seeds will go on the paper they will burn. Bake at 200 ° C for about 20 minutes

We really liked them! And to you?
