Baking is Fun
... or very messy, depending on your point of view. From the parent's perspective, it is definitely the latter, although I am torn between wanting to let my kids enjoy themselves in the kitchen and have fun while creating good things to eat, and not wanting my kitchen to look like a disaster area. When it's time to clean up, the children, for some reason, are nowhere to be found (which is probably a good thing, since things often look worse after the children clean them).
The above was the aftermath of a brownie-baking session. The kids aren't getting any neater, but they are starting to learn what they can and cannot put in their mouths. Sugar - good. Salt - good. Flour - not so good. Cocoa powder - blech.
