Baking With Kids!
Why not celebrate Christmas and New Year by baking a cake with your child? Working in the kitchen teaches a lot of things to the child, boys and girls alike. It’s a great practical life activity. Children learn self care and hygiene (washing hands before starting), numbers, quantities, fractions (mix 1 cup this & ½ cup that), independence, sequencing (do this and then do that and then bake) and much more.
It improves their motor skills as they work out their tiny muscles while performing age relevant kitchen chores. Practical life activities make for one of the most important areas of Montessori education, helping with order, concentration, coordination, and independence.
Here is the recipe for a healthy cake for kids that they would love preparing and eating too.
