Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: To bake a cake as fast as you can.
Practice: Today, work with your child to bake a cake together.
Let the child help in every way possible.
Start with gathering the ingredients. Talk to your child about where the ingredients come from. Talk with your child about what ingredients are most healthy.
Teach some mathematics when measuring ingredients. For a young child, you can count while stirring.
Plan the decorations on the icing and let your child help with both the design and construction.
Be sure your child is with you when you present the cake to a special person.
Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, CLEVER JACK TAKES THE CAKE. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.
Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
