Mermaids` Makings

Pat- a- cake, pat- a- cake..

I was so happy to see that my little one found lots of other ways to play with our bean bags. I absolutely LOVE it when children make up their own games using simple materials.. very often non toys. Childrens` fantasy and creatitivity is amazing!

So here are some plates from our ring tossing game, patties (our bean bags)… for the rolling pin she used just a simple twig, for a spatula she used a ruler, for the stove a little bowl turned upside down, for decorations polystyrene voidfill..

I was offered the patties too and they tastied yummy! After eating we sang some nursery rhymes about patting a cake in both languages. Whenwe were babysitting my sister`s baby in summer we sang the Estonian version very often. My daughter loved holding the baby`s hands and patting the cake and singing the song.

Patsi, patsi leivapätsi,

siilu, saalu saiapätsi.

Veere, veere kakku – viska ahju hopsti!

Tee kakku, kasta saia,

sili sealihaga,

kasta kanamunaga,

Pane ahju supsti,

võta välja lipsti,

söö ära nämm- nämm!

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man.

 Bake me a cake as fast as you can;

 Pat it and prick it and mark it with B,

 Put it in the oven for baby and me.

 Patty cake, patty cake, baker’s man.

 Bake me a cake as fast as you can;

 Roll it up, roll it up;

 And throw it in a pan!

 Patty cake, patty cake, baker’s man
