Kids are great helpers (and rascals) in the kitchen and can easily be involved in the process. Your child would be willing to do all the rinsing, grating and cutting work you kindly delegate as long as you keep it playful.
These two recipes are so easy and can be basically made in 15 minutes. They are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon dessert with the whole family.
Fancy, Fun & Simple Desserts Kids Can Make
Either of these recipes is fast and fun and involves having dirty hands. In the same time they are quick to make and require no special preparations.
Let your child crack the eggs, beat them together or mix the cookie dough by hand and form cookies of their own.
This simple exercise will enable them to experience the food and learn more rapidly about ingredients and consistency. All this make them a good reason to go into the family’s season favorites!
