10 Fun Tips for Baking with Kids - One-Minute Parent

by |

Sure you have holiday baking to do, but remember to spend fun time with your little ones in the kitchen, too. Little kids love to bake — and they will take the lead from you. Here are a few tips to help you on your way:

• Have them read the instructions one by one, then seek them out together

• Play dress up: aprons, chef hats, pint-sized baking tools keep the spirit fun

• Let the kids do the cutting with fun cookie cutters

• Put on holiday music, keep it fun, taste as you go and make a mess

• Be in a good mood, Mom!

• Get the kids up to counter height so they are in the middle of the action — there’s nothing like standing on a good stool next to Mom

• Measure & count. Show them how to use your measuring spoons and cups

• Try new recipes together

• Be patient with your little cooks

• Accept imperfections! The cookies don’t have to be PERFECT.
