"Baking also helps develop their skills such as reading and counting, and improves their fine motor skills."

Running out of things for the kid's to do in the holidays? Baking not only keeps children entertained but helps keep the pantry full with tasty treats in the tins; win win!

 

Baking is a great way to spend time with your kids; it encourages a more adventurous palette and gives them confidence to try new foods. Baking also helps develop their skills such as reading and counting, and improves their fine motor skills. Don’t forget to have a spare apron on hand to try and keep mess to a minimum.
