Baking with kids can be lots of fun and rather messy! But among all the mess, there are so many benefits that kids gain from the whole baking experience.
Baking with kids provides practical experience with many essential skills such as reading, following directions, and measuring. Getting involved in cooking helps your child to develop fine motor skills, eye hand coordination, and even early concepts of math and science. There are just so many great benefits to cooking with kids.
Why not make learning through baking even more fun by linking it to your child’s most recent experience or interest, for instance if you have just come back from watching The Tiger Who Came To Tea live on stage (if you haven’t then book your tickets today) – You can extend the fun and learning at home by baking a tiger bread. Children love to play with dough and this activity is sure to engage them in lots of mathematical and imaginative learning experiences.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea will be roaring its way back to London this summer! Playing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the West End from 11 July until 4 September 2022, this is one of the best London attractions for kids aged 3+ this summer, so why not book your tickets and enjoy a day out to remember? The show runs for 55-minutes long and is based on the popular children’s picture book by Judith Kerr.
