9 Recipes for Kids to Bake


Paula has always loved getting her children and grandchildren into the kitchen with her. It’s a great way to teach kids valuable life skills, like cooking, counting, measuring, telling time, and cleaning up after themselves! One of the easiest ways to get kids started is with baking, as it’s mostly measuring, stirring, and pouring, so today we’re sharing 9 kid-friendly baking recipes.

From cookies and cupcakes to biscuits and cobblers, these recipes are all simple enough to prepare and delicious to eat! It’s a fun and productive way to get their hands dirty, boost their confidence, and create a sense of accomplishment. Plus, you’ll be creating special memories with them while fostering a love of spending time in the kitchen, which can be beneficial for their health for years to come.

Whether you’re starting with something like a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe that’s special year round or a wonderful Southern peach cobbler recipe while fresh peaches are still in season, the recipes found here are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face. Of course baking doesn’t have to just be desserts too! Having them help with a simple dump-and-stir biscuit recipe, like The Lady & Sons Cheese Biscuits recipe, will allow them to contribute to dinner, as well, which can have a positive impact on their willingness to try new foods at the supper table.
