Melbourne Cup in Home Environment
It was a busy afternoon in Home Environment on Melbourne Cup Day.
We began the festivities by baking horseshoe cookies. The children measured and mixed the ingredients then formed the dough into horseshoe shaped cookies and decorated them with sultanas.
While the cookies were baking we made fascinators, ties and bow ties to rival the fashion at Flemington. The children looked fantastic in their finery.
The main event was the running of the 5th Annual Home Environment Cup. All the children made their own hobby horse to ride in the race and they had a great time galloping around the track.
To complete the day’s events, we enjoyed a picnic of horseshoe cookies.
What a great day!
