Christmas Holidays Activity Ideas Day 3

Cup Cake Baking

Children of all ages love having the opportunity to cook or bake. The age of your child will dictate which part of the activity your child will enjoy the most. Babies under a year will enjoy exploring and tasting the mixture and eating the end product. As they near the one-year age children will also enjoy helping to mix but they may not stick at it for long. As children are reaching the age of two they will begin to enjoy the whole of the activity, but they too might enjoy tasting as they go so expect this. Older children will enjoy “reading” the recipe below with you and will begin to be interested in the changes that occur to the mixture they put into the oven during the baking process.
