Fortunately the milk - floaty ball person carrier cake

Just a quick one from me our theme of 'Fortunately the milk' continues and it is influencing a lot in our day to day lives. For example it was my mums birthday and so she had to have a floaty ball person carrier cake. If you have no idea what I'm talking about you'll have to read the book!

Fortunately the Milk - summer holiday theme

The summer holidays have finally arrived for us and this year we have decided to theme our break around the book 'Fortunately the milk' by Neil Gaiman. Neil's Work > Books > Fortunately the Milk
If you haven't read it, you must. It's a perfect children's book that has little jokes in it for the grown ups. Boys will love it, just like William does because it's packed with dinosaurs, volcanoes, vampires, and aliens. So there is lots of potential for themed activities. Our first day of the summer holidays I introduced William to his own Professor StegFortunately the Milk: Gaiman's kid-novel is a tribute to fatherly ...
 
(one of the main characters in the book) and together we made strawberry milk shakes.


To make our strawberry milk shakes you will need 
300ml of milk 
one banana
half a punnet of strawberries.
Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Garnish your straw with a strawberry.
