Ready to start? WARNING! Needs adult help.
Ask an adult to pre-heat the oven while you sift the flour and baking powder together into a mixing bowl - use your large metal spoon to help you squash any lumps and push the powder through the holes of the sifter or mesh strainer.
Stir in the raisins then push the mixture out to the sides to make a well in the middle of your bowl. Slowly pour in the milk and water.
Sprinkle some flour on to a clean cutting board then roll out the dough to make a circle that is about 1/2-inch thick.
Put the gingerbread man and woman cookie cutters on the dough SHARP SIDE DOWN. Press them down to cut out the shapes. Then roll out the left-over dough to cut out a boy and girl with a plastic knife.
Gather up any left-over dough, knead it and roll it out again, then use your plastic knife or other cookie cutters to make some more shapes.
Rub a little margarine on to your baking tray to grease it. Lay your scone people on the tray and brush a little beaten egg on each one.
Make some eyes and a mouth from raisins. Ask an adult to put the scones in the oven for you. After 15 minutes, ask them to take them out. Leave to cool then eat!
