It's chilly, rainy, or just plain gray out...maybe it's a good day to invite a few friends over for an inside play date. Or just bake up a little fun with your little ones - building confident kitchen skills or maybe learning a sprinkling of math to boot!
Make It Special!
- Print copies of the Bear Cookie Pops recipe for each child to take home. Include your child's name as the "host" of the day, along with his/her tips for baking their favorite treats.
- Once you've established the kitchen safety rules and get underway, invite one of the children to be the TV host of their own cooking show. Let them show the other kids what they need to do to decorate their cookies.
- Give the children a quiz about some of the baking techniques you've demonstrated. Measuring, using the oven, cooling and decorating...reinforce what they've learned in a fun way (the right answer gets an extra chocolate kiss!)
