Baking and cooking are more than just kitchen skills; they’re an opportunity to slip in some other kinds of lessons—reading, vocabulary, math, time, following directions, and cooperation. Even the youngest children can learn simple tasks like filling a measuring cup, and older ones can figure out how much milk is needed if you want to double the pumpkin-pie recipe below.
What You’ll Need
- 5.1 ounce package instant vanilla-pudding mix
- ½ cup milk
- 1 cup canned pumpkin-pie filling
- 1 container (8 ounces) whipped topping
- 1 graham-cracker pie crust
