Mom and child cooking experiments are always fun, even after having to experience wild amounts of flour, macaroni, and other unmentionables in your hair and all over your clothes, being able to share something as fun and special as cooking with your little ones is always a treat. Cooking can provide a major source of creativity and confidence in children, which makes it important to include them in the process as much as possible. While we know that it isn’t always ideal to have a kiddo around tons of knives and big scary kitchen tools, you would be surprised by how much your little one can accomplish in the kitchen. These dessert recipes are delicious, fun, and a perfect way to get kids interested in cooking. Try them out!
