Encouraging your child to participate in the creation of baking a favourite treat will create a sense of accomplishment, develop a life long skill and learning math and science concepts.
Children can assist in the kitchen as your little helper, measuring, adding, sifting and stirring. They can also cut and grate with supervision. Children learn how to spread with a knife by being given the opportunity to practice with supervision. Grating the vegetables to go in a vegetable soup encourages children to eat vegetables they might not normally eat.
Children are learning maths and science concepts such as measurements, dissolve, mix, and seeing how dry ingredients can become wet and then change again when baked! They can learn about healthy food and are learning about contributing to the wellbeing of the whole family. All areas of their development are being enhanced.
