Bagel making

I love bagels! Particularly cinnamon and raisin bagels. So we decided to try and make some.
The boys helped to shape them, first into little balls...and then into dough rings

Call me naive, but I never knew that bagels were boiled before baking. This was the most exciting step :)
The boys removing the bagels

Then brushing on the beaten egg
We did a quick fraction lesson outside while we waited for the bagels to bake.

Oh they smelt so delicious whilst baking!
The children sat on the steps in the sunshine enjoying their very fresh bagels :) The tried half plain and half toasted and liked both equally :)

So free and happy outside
