05 Jul School Holiday Fun
The Gladstone News Team hope students (and parents) around the Gladstone Region have a relaxing winter break.
We’ve pulled together a couple of baking and crafting ideas that should help keep the holiday boredom blues away.
School Holiday Recipe – Chocolate Pinwheels
Enjoy this chocolate pinwheel recipe as a simple treat for your kids to create (with or without your supervision) these school holidays.
The recipe is quick, and they taste delicious, especially fresh out of the oven with a lovely cup of tea or warm milk.
- 1 sheet puff pastry
- 1/4 cup Nutella or chocolate hazelnut spread
- 1/4 cup icing sugar
- Preheat oven to 190C.
- Spread Nutella over pastry.
- Roll up pastry and cut into eight pieces.
- Place on a greased oven tray and bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden and puffed.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool.
- Once cooled, sift icing sugar over the top of pinwheels.
- Enjoy with a glass of warm milk.

- Clean recycled cans (any size will work)
- Acrylic paintand paintbrushes
- Glue (we prefer Elmer’s craft bond glue or a low-temp glue gun)
- Assorted ribbons (you could also use wool, coloured paper)
- Optional embellishments like glitter, stickers, gemstones, sequins etc.
- Masking tape or duct tape.
- Start by lining the inside rim of the cans with a layer or two of thick masking or duct tape to avoid sharp edges.
- Paint the can in the colour or colours of choice.
- After the paint is dry use glue to attach colourful ribbons to the bottom rim of the can and one to the top for hanging.
- Decorate as desired with glitter, stickers, and gemstones.
