One of the hardest things, I think, is trying to get a child to read and follow a recipe. How do we solve that? The Kitchen Mason way of course! With my super easy to follow step by step picture recipes – even if they can’t read yet, it’ll make it super easy for them to keep track of their own progress. It’s also a great way to get them problem solving if things don’t quite go to plan.

It’s such a wonderful thing to bake with children. There’s something just so beautiful that happens when you make things with a child – it’s the perfect way to bond! Not only that, but the kids feel such a great sense of achievement when they have something delicious to show for it at the end too. It’s just magical.

What makes a recipe easy for kids?

To answer this question, we have to go back to basics and forget everything we’ve learnt on our way to being an adult. Just like we were kids again! So imagine you’ve never baked before…

  • The recipe needs to be easy to follow
  • It needs to use simple ingredients (not fancy, unheard of ones!)
  • Step by step pictures are a wonderful bonus
  • Clear and simple instructions
  • Easy for the adult to follow too (to make it as stress free as possible!)

The real joy of baking with kids is that you get to help them in any areas they struggle with and praise them on the things they’re good at. It’s all about spending quality time with them – which is the best bit isn’t it?
