MAKE + BAKE

Here’s a delicious way to spread kindness. Next time you bake, make a little extra to share with a friend or neighbor in need of cheer. Or drop off your goodies at a fire or police station as a “thank you” to our first responders. Also consider sharing your homemade treats with the grateful folks in nursing homes, shelters and food pantries. For lots of great recipes that are fun to cook together with your child, check out the Kids Cook Monday.
Talk to your child:
•    Is it more fun to make food when you share your creation with others? Why or why not?
•    What’s your favorite thing to cook or bake? What else would you like to learn to make?
