Today Kipper decided to have a rather useful activity and force LM and I to do something with the blackening bananas in the house. LM was able to make banana bread this morning, something that she took a great amount of delight in.
We added a little too much butter, and not quite enough baking powder. We tossed in some chocolate chips for good measure too, but all in all we still ended with some rather yummy banana chocolate bread.
If the banana bread wasn’t enough there was also a yummy spatula for LM to lick when we were done. I think that was her favorite part.
Being able to bake with LM this morning wasn’t easy, it was far from perfect, but it was some of the best fun I have had this week. Her enthusiasm for assisting, as well as making mischief, and even attempting to put Kipper IN the flour container made it all so much more fun. I love that she loves to help me and I know that encouraging that will help her blossom those skills which hopefully will lead to some great helping after belly baby comes.
Do you bake with your little ones? What is your favorite thing to make?
