February is National Baking at Home for Family Fun
The Home Baking Association has declared February as “Bake at Home for Family Fun.” This is a great way to get children involved in cooking. This will increase family time and give the children an opportunity to be involved in the meal. Eating at home as a family has shown to improve family bonding. This opportunity should also introduce healthy eating options to the family.
Children will learn the following skills while in the kitchen:
increasing a recipe – multiplication and addition,
decreasing a recipe – division and addition, subtracting
baking time – time awareness, addition
reading the recipe – comprehensive
following instructions – observe punctuation marks,
cooking terminology – increase vocabulary,
Leveling agents – chemical reactions
Salt, Sugar and other ingredient – purpose and interactions
You will find recipes, videos and various baking items on the Home Baking Association website. Happy Baking!
