There is something so enticing about baking for kids. They seem to find so much enjoyment out of the process that it really doesn’t even matter what the final result is. In our case though, these muffins were divine!
The most important step though is preparation. I like to use box mixes when I am baking with my kids because of the simplicity. Things don’t need to be mixed a certain way or for a certain period of time.
I present the baking activity by placing all the necessary ingredients on the table.
Since there are two kids they will have to learn to share so that they both get to do the activity together. (They battle with this.)
D throws half of the mix into the bowl and then gives A a turn to throw the rest in.
The last time I baked with the kids was months ago and I don’t think A even remembers it.
A throws in the water.
D adds the eggs into the bowl.
Someone put in the oil but I can’t remember who.
Aww see how nicely they are mixing the ingredients together?
Yip, they even shared the leftovers!
And this smile is proof that this was an activity well done. 🙂
I always feel guilty about not baking enough with my kids. I need to make more of an effort in this area. Thanks 🙂
