Build Your Preschooler's Self-Esteem While Baking Cookies: This Simple Trick Makes It Easy on You & Your Child! by Annie Dillon

4 years ago

I'm always looking for ways to engage my 3-year-old. He's a busy guy, going from one activity to the next as fast as he can. However, one thing most preschoolers want is to be helpful and do big guy or girl things. Helping in the kitchen can be a fun activity for both of you ... especially when you're baking cookies!

The trick? By preparing the ingredients ahead of time in kid-friendly containers, your preschooler can help out and build his self-esteem in the process. Working together not only builds your relationship, but also builds a sense of accomplishment in you child. 

Enjoy the process - and the delicious outcome!
