5 Tips To Maximize Fun and Minimize Stress When Baking With Kids

o Maximizing Fun and Minimizing Stress When Baking With Kids

Baking with kids, especially under the age of 5, can be stressful and messy but these 5 tips will help you instantly minimize those challenges and help create positive baking memories with your child. I started baking with my kitchen helper at the age of two. Their natural curiosity will typically have them following you into the kitchen and wanting to use the special equipment and/or taste ingredients. Yes, there is a tasty treat at the end of a baking session, but little do your children know they are working on their fine motor skills throughout the whole process. The act of gripping, pouring, and whisking are strengthening their little hands for preschool writing and beyond. Your kitchen helpers are also learning new words, smelling and tasting new ingredients, understanding directions and spending quality time with you creating something together. All these benefits are why I started this blog and are the driving factors of making over 200 recipes with my kitchen helper.  You must readjust the way you would bake alone and try these tips to incorporate little hands and eager minds into the kitchen.  Happy Baking!
