Smiling faces, sparkling eyes and a bit of chaos in the kitchen – baking makes kids happy! Baking is one of the few activities in the kitchen where even toddlers can easily help – under the supervision of parents, of course. And there is hardly a child who does not like homemade cookies, cupcakes, cakes and other sweets? Baking with children can also be fun for parents – try it out for yourself! Below are a few suggestions and recipe ideas that you can follow along with the little ones. Enjoy reading!

Baking with kids is fun!

Baking with children would undoubtedly bring you great pleasure, and give you the opportunity to spend many happy moments with the little ones. And they will certainly like to knead dough, cut it out with cookie cutters, help decorate sweets, and, of course, eat them when they are already baked. If they participate in the baking process, the little ones will also be particularly proud of the result, and will not feel neglected, because they spend a lot of time in the kitchen alone, instead of paying attention to them. Choose one of our baking recipes with the children and try to realize this together. Leave the little ones to the easiest and most entertaining tasks by taking their age into account, of course. The children do not have to stay alone in the kitchen and be kept as far away as possible from the stove, cakes, kitchen knives and other “dangerous” objects. Below are our recipe ideas. We hope you enjoy them and wish you lots of fun baking!
