I have been baking with my kids since they were toddlers. If you are new to baking with kids, cookies are a great way to start. They often bake up quickly, which is great when you are a kid who lacks patience. Your child can help with making cookies when they are as young as two. Each of the Cookie Recipes for Kids below have been made with kids. Baking is a great way for kids to learn and a wonderful opportunity for bonding.
