DAY 2

I don't have the right ingredients...


Mrs Mirfield's recipes are just for fun. You don't have to bake them all. You don't have to bake any of them. If you want to bake a recipe but don't have the right ingredients you could ask a grown up if you can get some next time they go shopping. If you do bake one of the recipes, don't forget to upload a photo using the hashtag #CharlotteHolmes




I still don't have enough jigsaw pieces/what jigsaw pieces?!...

If you don't have enough puzzle pieces: See if any of your pieces fit together, but don't worry if they don't. You might find some more later. If you don't have any puzzle pieces: If you purchased Charlotte Holmes after 7th Dec 2020 you have received a newly packed box. We have re-designed when you receive your puzzle pieces to heighten the drama towards the end of the adventure!
