Week One: Bake for Family Fun Month

Week 1: Let’s Get Started Baking

If you don’t bake, or teach baking, why get started?

Today my top three reasons to step into the kitchen and bake with family or children in our world include words-to-the-wise from child development professionals.

Baking builds STEAM at home You can model experimentation and apply science, tech, engineering, art, math PLUS culture, history and literacy, by baking.

Step 1: Science and math both require accurate measuring skills! Check this out!

Step 2: Conduct a measuring experiment at home, some additional kitchen science about yeast.
51whbyegzdl “Can-Do Kids”: Author Richard Rende, child development psychologist, explains, “Getting in the kitchen together contributes to raising confident, successful team-players. When children help create the meal, they get curious; they build cognitive and multi-sensory connections.”

 

Step 1: Post a skills check list for each person to see their skills and techniques grow.

Step 2: Groove your kitchen and baking food safety guidelines.

End picky, less-than-healthy expensive eating. Begin anytime, but especially young…age 2 or 3! Kids who help create what’s served up want to taste it! Stanford U. Professor Maya Adam, MD confirms, “What about adding value to your family’s day-to-day interaction by spending more time in the kitchen and involving the children whenever possible? Some parents are understandably worried, but the health risks of not teaching a kid to cook are far greater than giving them a sharp object!”

Step 1: Choose simple recipes, list ingredients, shop and get started.

Step 2: Everybody cleans up!
