Baking with kids

Bake with your kids they said… It’ll be fun they said. Let’s be honest, sometimes it’s stressful, messy and frustrating… This recipe is really easy and the crumble is like a sensory activity!

Our setup

I usually pre measure the ingredients and preheat the oven. Everything is set up on a large surface area that’s a suitable height for Mason so he can get involved. He absolutely loves baking and it’s really good for his gross motor skills!
