Being a homeschool mom, one of the things I have loved the most is being able to work with my kiddos one on one in the kitchen. I think it’s so important for little ones to get a good idea of how to do basic cooking and baking. Learning to cook is such a confidence booster for kids and teaches them self reliance. Maybe someday they’ll start cooking for me…I’m just going to throw that out there. I used to take an hour out of each week just to get really hands on with my 6 and 7 year old. We’ve flipped grilled cheese, used cookie cutters, tried piping frosting. All the fun things that the kitchen has to offer. Then my little girl started to get really into all of it; she wanted to cook or bake every day. As any parent knows, life doesn’t always provide the time to spend an hour in the kitchen supervising and making a mess. If you do happen to have time, it can be tough coming up with ideas on what to make; something easy but healthy. Something not too messy but that still allows them to be creative. Then I discovered these easy and fun kid baking projects that can be brought strait to your door.
