One of the best things you can do with your kids is share some time together in the kitchen. William-Sonoma has a book called Kids Baking that will give you plenty of ideas of what to make with your kids. All the recipes are pretty basic. Each one lists what tools you will need, so the kids can easily gather those together. There are recipes for cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pies, pastries, simple breads, muffins, and yeast breads. The book comes spiral bound and is full of pictures of kids baking. This will give ideas of how your kids can help with the process. Of course never leave your kids alone to do these recipes, they need your supervision. The book is meant for kids 6 and up. But I think there are steps even younger kids can help with like mixing ingredients and putting sprinkles on cookies. I would recommend this book to any parents looking to help their kids learn to bake and looking to make memories in the process.
