Baking Recipes For Kids

As I have children of varying ages at home we are trying to prep the older ones for life outside of the house, whilst also educating the little ones at the same time. Food in my house is all about fun. Ellie and I have spent some time baking recently and she has absolutely loved it. It has also given us some lovely time together. Today I’m sharing Baking Recipes For Kids. One very simple recipe and it is even easy enough for smalls to do and I can guarantee you will have fun 🙂 I hope to expand on my easy recipes for children over the coming months and I do hope you enjoy.

    I like the idea of making easy recipes for children that will not only be a great bonding tool but will also give them familiarity with the kitchen and make it a happy and interactive place to be in.
