12 Recipes to Try With Kids at Home

Have you ever noticed that when you’re baking a cake or frosting some cupcakes, your kids drop everything to help you? Leave alone helping you, they want to take charge and do everything! Involving your kids in cooking and baking is not only about having fun but also about connecting with them, understanding them, helping them be more patient, encouraging gross motor skill development, taking out their creative side and lastly teaching them some basic math concepts such as fractions and geometry! There are so many benefits of this activity! And you never know, they might fall in love with it and become the next Gordon Ramsay!

Apart from all these benefits, cooking with children is an important activity because it helps them be more independent and it’s also important to inculcate in children from a young age that cooking is a basic chore and not a gender-centric role!
