Focaccia art is the perfect school holiday activity to do with the kids on a wintery day. Simply collect the freshest and brightest art supplies from the Market on any Tuesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday and get to decorating. The focaccia is super easy to make too; just allow yourself some time to let the dough rise.

You can attempt to steal Nonna’s secret focaccia recipe out of her cookbook if you have the guts but if that idea insights a spark of fear, we suggest checking out a simple recipe here.
