Baking with Children
I love having my children help me in the kitchen, if I'm not a hurry and the thing I'm making doesn't have to turn out just so. I also have to remember to bring lots of patients. There will be a mess, there will be little fingers grabbing everything in sight, and it will take five times longer than it would if you didn't have your little helpers, but really, it still can be fun. It also helps if you are making something you are very familiar with and is an easy recipe to follow, as steps and ingredients can easily be left out when there are so many distractions. And yes, there will be plenty of those too.
The other day we made an apple pie together. This is a great thing to make with kids, because nothing has to be precisely measured out.
