Rainbow Muffins

Rain, rain go away come again another day, week or month. It is still raining here so I thought I would get Bear and Bee to help me make some colourful rainbow muffins to help cheer us all up. however, as any body who has cooked with children will know things don't always go to plan. Neither of them were interested in helping me cook these. I couldn't even entice them into helping put the smarties on top. Never mind. We did all enjoy eating them and perhaps you will have more success with your child.
