Let the Kids Help Bake Up Fun and Education

Making cookies with the kids is a wonderful way to bond with your children. It will create lasting memories and allows children to learn valuable kitchen skills and develop their sense of taste. The process of measuring ingredients, mixing, and decorating cookies is a great way to teach kids about following instructions and paying attention to details.

Allowing children to help in the kitchen is not only a fun activity, but it also provides valuable educational opportunities. Children can learn math skills by measuring ingredients, and gain knowledge about food and nutrition. Cooking and baking with kids also help to build their confidence and self-esteem, as they take pride in their creations. 

So next time you’re in the kitchen, don’t be afraid to let the kids help bake up some fun and education.

How to Make Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies?

Mix all the ingredients of the heart jam cookies into a dough, wrap it in a cling film, and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for an hour. 

Prepare a baking tray with baking paper, and once the dough has rested enough, preheat the oven to 170 ℃ (340°F). 

Then knead it well and form small, even balls. Press the balls a little bit to shape them.
