Baking is a family tradition, passed down from generation to generation; if it’s not a tradition in your house, it can be. Not only does everyone want to gather around the kitchen table for dessert, but bringing children into the kitchen is a great way to encourage creativity. Baking together is fun for kids and adults alike. Plus, the results are delicious!
Although you don’t want small children handling hot food or getting too close to the oven, there are plenty of ways they can help out in the kitchen safely. The little ones can decorate cookies and cupcakes — they will love brightly colored frosting and sprinkles. Set up older children with cookie cutters in lots of shapes. Everyone will have fun participating in the kitchen, and they’ll be thrilled with their unique treats.
