The holiday season is in full swing, and for many of us, that means baking and making goodies. What better time to get the kids involved in the kitchen with you?
Baking may not be your thing, and that’s okay. We all have wonderful friends, family, and local bakeries we can rely on for plenty of holiday treats. But if you do love to bake, there are many benefits to bringing the kids alongside you in the process. Baking together can be a fun and memorable bonding time. It’s a great learning tool that teaches real life math and adult skills. And as kids grow and start to learn recipes on their own, it fosters independence, a sense of responsibility, and provides a way for them to contribute something gratifying to the family or to others.
If you love to bake and your kids desire to be more involved in the kitchen, perhaps holiday baking can be a springboard to teaching your children to bake all on their own. For a great article on this topic, check out this informative and inspiring blog post from simplehomeschool.net, called “Teaching kids to bake–the whys and hows.”
