Bliss balls seems to have become popular this year and suddenly there are heaps of brands available in the supermarket. Store bought ones have the advantage that they will last for ages in their little sealed packets but it can be fun to make your own and they’re an easy recipe for toddlers to help with – it’s also easy to adjust ingredients or cater for allergies when making your own.  I also rather liked that these are softer and easier to eat than the store ones.
