There’s nothing more fun or a better bonding experience than getting messy in the kitchen with your kids! We absolutely LOVE cooking and baking together. As moms we’re under the pressure to make everything a Pinterest worthy creation which causes us to miss out on the joy of our kids being kids. That’s why my motto is to EMBRACE those happy accidents because that’s what creates the spice of life. It truly doesn’t matter to your kids how beautiful the cake looks….what matters is that you took the time out to include them in the process of making it.
Who cares if the kitchen looks like a chocolate volcano exploded!
I bought the kids these adorable little aprons that come with their own utensils for our kitchen shenanigans and they absolutely LOVE them! I swear
