Parents always get worried when the summer holidays are near because they don’t know what to do with their kids. There is a price for everything these days so it is not possible to take your kids everyday as it will become expensive. Families that are on tight budgets normally let their children watch TV, play games on computer or watch DVD throughout the day. I used to spend my time playing outside in my childhood as there were no computer games or any DVDs.
We see many parents are so detached with their children these days as they are happy even if the kids spend their time alone in their room watching TV, playing games on internet etc. It is very important for you to spend some quality time with your kids especially in those early stages of life so that there is a strong bonding between you and your kids.
One of the best and cost efficient ways to spend time with your kids is baking with them. You can create a quality time with your child by baking along with her or him. Spending time with your kid in baking can create a good bonding between you two as you both will work together to accomplish different tasks of baking.
Your kid will develop the ability of understanding measures and weights. As a parent you should encourage them to take complete charge of collecting all the ingredients mentioned in the recipe and also measuring all the ingredients. You should discuss the process with your kid so that he or she understands the need of having right quantities.
Kids also develop their motor skills in baking as they combine the ingredients together and measure them properly for baking. At the time of this section of baking procedure your child can use his or her hands to combine all the ingredients so that they can feel the textures of all the ingredients and understand how the texture changes when each ingredient is added.
Once the mixture is done the next part of the process is dividing the mixture for baking. This process also teaches kids about measuring so that they can make sure that each and every baked item is similar or equal.
Since baking includes a hot oven you should be very careful while baking with kids so they don’t get in any problem. As a parent you should make sure to supervise your child throughout the procedure. Kids can also learn about the timing involved in the process of baking so that items are baked properly and also be able to know when the item is ready to take out.
Kids will see the results of their work once the baking procedure is complete and they would want to show off their skill to their friends and other family members.
