Share the joy of baking with your child and share your treats with those in need. Simply double your recipe of cookies, bars, bread or cake and donate the bounty to a neighbor, a friend who is having a hard time, or a shelter or care facility that will accept homemade treats. Take a photo of your plate of treats or the happy recipient and share it with us (firstname.lastname@example.org), along with your story.
Talk to your child:
What do you like best about baking?
Is it more fun to bake for yourself or to share your creations with others?
