And while you’re at it, take a look at these handy tips for baking with kids, sent to us by WearEver:

TIPS FOR BAKING WITH KIDS

Choose a simple recipe, re-read the recipe several times with your child before beginning (and keep it handy of course!).

Put small children on a stable, sturdy stool.

Prepare by getting out all the necessary ingredients and equipment before you begin cooking.

Teach your children kitchen safety by using oven mitts or pot holders, keeping pot handles turned inward and keeping surfaces clean.

Place baking sheets on the middle rack so curious eyes can watch the cooking without opening the oven door.

No matter the result, praise your child for the effort and make a date to bake together again, and create memories that may last a lifetime.
