Kids Baking Activities with FREE Downloadable Worksheet

When the kids are at home, there's no better way to have a fun, educational, and DELICIOUS time than to get in the kitchen for some kids baking!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Having the kids at home should make time spent together lovelier, and it does, but I know that it can also add a little stress when you mix in work, education, and just generally trying to keep them busy with or without screen time. As a new parent, I definitely want to create more kids-related content, and combining that with my years as a professional chef seems like a natural way to do just that.

Let’s relieve some of that stress with a fun way to get the whole family into the kitchen, learn some new skills, and make some delicious food through kids baking! It’s proven that baking with kids helps develop motor skills, math, science, as well as problem-solving, imagination, teamwork, and improvisation. A skill that is fun AND helps you learn? That’s a win-win for parents and kids. 

I’ve come up with a worksheet of sorts — but it shouldn’t feel like work, so let’s call it a “bakesheet” — that has one simple recipe for each day of the week. I challenge you and your kids to complete as much of it as you can. I understand there may be ingredient constraints, but I tried to take that into consideration while choosing these recipes. There’s no better way to create food memories and POSITIVE feelings about this time at home than kids baking.

As you go, submit images of your final products on this page and let me know how you get on in the comments and on social media with the hashtag #bakelifebolder. I’ll make sure to highlight your hard work for all to see!

Here are the links to the first week’s recipes:

MONDAY

Let’s kick this week off with something small but mighty: my 1 Minute Microwave Mug Cake! Anyone can dig into these single-serving cakes made right in the microwave.

TUESDAY

Muffins are great to have on hand to grab for some energy or just a little sweet treat. Best-Ever Bakery Style Double Chocolate Muffins are definitely the way to go, because who doesn’t love chocolate?

WEDNESDAY

Feeling a little… French? Make the pancake’s fancier cousin: Crepes! HINT: Fancier doesn’t mean harder.

THURSDAY

Crazy times call for crazy ideas — make my Crazy Cookie Dough and turn that one simple cookie dough into any flavor you want (or have)!

FRIDAY

Do you have cookies? Crush them up and add them to your Homemade Ice Cream with 2 Ingredients. Anything you have on-hand that sounds good in ice cream can work!

SATURDAY

You need dinner, so you might as well make it from scratch, and make it FUN! 15-Minute Pizza Dough (No-Yeast) is fast, simple, and best of all: PIZZA.

SUNDAY

Can you think of a better way to spend Sunday morning than making Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes for breakfast?

Here are the links to the second week’s recipes:

MONDAY

If you have Bananas on the verge of going bad, don’t toss them! Make my Best-Ever Banana Bread and get the most out of them.

TUESDAY

Everyone needs a snack, right? Instead of opening a pack of something processed, quickly make Homemade Potato Chips however you’d like!

WEDNESDAY

Just three ingredients, but oh so good! Make my 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies.

THURSDAY

Even if you could make it to the store to feed your Pop-Tart craving, you still won’t find this flavor! Make my Ham & Cheese Pop-Tarts.

FRIDAY

Everyone loves Nutella, right? In just minutes you can make my 3 Ingredient Nutella Mug Cake.

SATURDAY

Sweet treats are nice, but frozen sweet treats can be better! Even if it’s cold where you are, make my Strawberry Banana Frozen Yogurt and treat yourself.

SUNDAY

I love dessert, it’s no secret — but I absolutely love breakfast, too. Wake up and my Best-Ever French Toast Recipe.

I love the idea, but would appreciate the ingredient list and the recipes attached. In this time I know I won’t have all the ingredients on-hand. One page with this would make this more doable.
