Carys loves to help me in the kitchen. Over the weekend, she wanted to make brownies. To keep it simple and organized, I have her help me pull out all of the ingredients. Then together we measure everything into separate bowls or measuring cups. This is a great learning tool. For example, she has been studying measurements in math so this practice will reinforce those concepts. Last, I read aloud to her the instructions. In order, she assembles the ingredients.
Of course the best part of baking... licking the spoon and bowl!
