It’s OK. It doesn’t matter if it gets on the table. We’ll clean it up afterwards. But [child’s name] is going to measure a full cup of flour…
… it has to go right to the top.
Whoa, that was a big spoonful.
It’s a bit tricky, isn’t it? To pour in…
I’ve a bigger one.
An even bigger one. Yeah, so that’s called a tablespoon. And if you look here, that’s for measuring the oil.
Right, [child’s name]… Nearly, let’s see, do we think it’s full?
Perfect. So pour it in to your bowl. Now, if we look carefully at the recipe, we need 2 cups of flour.
Oh, you dropped it. That’s OK. I wonder, let’s see if we can do it, so you can reach the flour at the same time. We need a better container, don’t we?
Yeah, [child’s name], do you want to scrape it up a bit?
Shall I use this one?
Yeah, that’s a good idea. I’m just going to open this so you can reach the flour. Maybe, you can try and fill your cup as well because we need 2 cups. So if you do yours…
Then I have to stand up…
You can stand up, it will make it easier. Yeah, why don’t you move this closer to you? There you go. And pour it into your cup first, [child’s name]. There you go. Oh, floury hands.
We’re going to put it here. Yes, this is salt.
[children speaking] That’s OK. We can clean it afterwards.
Yes. Yeah, but we’re going to follow the recipe. So we need 1 cup of salt… maybe, let’s see. If you pour it very gently and carefully into here, we can make 1 cup.
Yeah. And then when you’ve done that, [child’s name], you can add that to the bowl.
I’m not done yet.
No, I know. You’ve still got a bit more space, haven’t you? Yeah, so watch the salt. [child’s name] is pouring it really carefully to measure it out. We need 1 cup.
A little too many.
It is a brand new container of salt. [child’s name] is really concentrating.
There are too many.
You think there’s too much?
Yeah, so many inside it.
So much salt inside. You can see it pouring out.
It’s already so sugary.
It does look a bit like sugar, doesn’t it? This is called salt.
It does look like sugar. Sugar and salt, white sugar and salt looks the same. Let’s have a look.
Do you think I’m done?
I think there’s a little bit more space. Do you think you could fit some more in?
Yeah, have another try. Just make sure it reaches the very top of the cup.
Whoa! So look. We’ve got to measure out the next ingredient. Can you remember what it is? Have a look at the recipe. We’ve had 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt…
Oh, yeah, 2 tablespoons…
We need both of them.
So we need this smaller…
Yeah, for the oil. And look, it’s over here.
So we’ve got all of our ingredients.
Perfect. Now, you can put it in your bowl.
Yes, look. Can you see the recipe? You can have two. Well done. Now, this bottle is quite big and heavy.
So let’s think about… I think that the oil is going to come out of it really, really quickly.
Oh my goodness!
Oh my goodness!
OK, so why don’t you hold that over the bowl… hold your cup. Do you want to try pouring it?
Go on then. So what we need to do… Do you want me to hold this? All right, have a try. It’s a bit tricky because it’s quite heavy. Do you think you can do it?
Woah! Right. I’ll hold that over there. Can you turn it? Hmm. It’s a bit tricky. We need a smaller container.
A bigger container.
Twist it around a bit.
Well done, [child’s name]. Lift it up, right. Let’s do it slowly. Go on.
Slowly, slowly, slowly.
And we need… Perfect. Pour it in.
That’s OK. It was just to catch the little drips, wasn’t it? And then another one.
Yeah, two. Hi [child’s name]. You got it.
Is this salt?
It is. Wow, that was excellent pouring and measuring.
Well done. You’re done. Just one moment, I’m just going to put the oil here. So look. Let’s have a check what [child’s name] needs next. She’s put 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of…
…salt. And… hmm, can you remember what this was called?
It is a measurement. It’s called a tablespoon.
And now this one.
Yeah. And now you need to use the same tool to measure the cream of tartar. So [child’s name], would you like to… you can do some salt in just a moment. I’m just going to open this.
It’s a bit tricky because it’s new.
I can do it myself.
Yeah. There are, aren’t there?
There we go…
