  • 6 year old son came home with so much excitement and joy, he couldn’t wait to get through the front door to show me the bread roll he made at school. The pride on his face was priceless, it was the first time he said he wanted to eat his seeded bread roll for tea and I didn’t stop him. Since his first attempt at bread making was so successful he decided that he wanted fresh bread rolls for breakfast the next day.The next day due to a teacher’s strike he had no school hence this request, so being a Wednesday evening and after a long day cleaning the house and tidying up I was totally exhausted and in no mood to make more mess to clear up but as he wanted these rolls for breakfast I physically and mentally found the strength from somewhere to allow a 6-year-old loose in my kitchen and that even with flour. It was 9.00 pm and we just started the bread making process, prior to that I searched online for an easy recipe he could follow as all my bread baking books have recipes requiring a few other ingredients. I came across a quick bread roll recipe on a childminder’s forum and adapted it. My son was having a whale of a time with all the mixing, playing with flour and sticky hands, as much as I was getting itchy to clean up as we go along but, I held it off till later. For me this was a brilliant experience for my son due to his ASD related difficulties, he was able to follow simplified instructions, enjoy sensory input, find it relaxing when kneading the dough and positive achievement of having bread rolls at the end. I have to point out that adult help is required especially with the measuring and some of the processes but kids can definitely take control of mixing ingredients, kneading and shaping. He definitely enjoyed these rolls for breakfast with slathers of butter. He has requested to bake more varieties of bread one of them to include his favourite dried fruit Raisins.
