Baking with your Preschooler from A-Z
Today, while vegging out and watching a movie with the kids, I got a great idea to use baking and cooking with the kids for each letter of the Alphabet (We do two letters a week...this week is G, and H) If you come up with any additional ideas, I'd love for you to post them on my blog, sometimes I have brain freeze! Here's what I came up with...and I'm looking forward to O...because I love Oatmeal cookies and we just bought a huge box at Costco!
I love the idea of baking and cooking with your kids because kids love to help, they love to get messy, and they love to stand on a stool next to mommy wearing their own apron! It is a lot of fun and it's fun to practice hygiene skills too!
A-Anything with Apples (apple slices, apple pie, apple bread), Apricot Muffins
B-Banana bread, or banana muffins, blueberry muffins, biscuits, brownies
C-Carrot cake, corn muffins, chocolate chip cookies, celery sticks with cream cheese, cupcakes
D-Dunkin Donuts (take a fun outing and go for a donut with your sweetie)
E-Egg salad, Egg slices
F-French Toast, Fruit Salad
G-Green Eggs and Ham (We read the book this week too!)
H-hot cocoa with marshmallows or whip-cream, Hawaiian Pizza (add pineapple chunks)
I-Ice Cream Sundaes
K-Kid Kabobs (cubes of meat, cheese, and chunks of veggies on wooden tooth picks)
L-Lemonade (kids love to help stir in the sugar and ice)
M-Muffins, Macaroni and Cheese, Meatballs
O-Oatmeal Cookies, Orange slices
P-Peanut butter sandwiches or peanut butter cookies, homemade Pizza, Pizza bagels, Pancakes
R-Raspberry muffins, Rice Krispy Treats
S-soup or stew (have them help you add the ingredients in bowl or pan), S'mores (graham crackers, chocolate, and melted marshmallows)
T-Tacos, Trail Mix
Come on you creative moms and friends, if you see a missing letter, help me fill it with your great idea!
