Time to start the holiday baking if you haven't already. And the holidays, with all the wonderful cookie baking and sweets making, are a perfect time to get the kids involved too.
Cooking and baking are valuable skills for kids to build as they grow. Start now and maybe they'll be doing all your holiday baking by the time they're teenagers. This is a good master plan, isn't it?

Give them as much ownership as you think they can handle. The more they feel they're creating something themselves, the more they'll feel accomplished, and the more they'll want to try and try again.
