While children are out of school, parents are looking for ways to keep their brains engaged without defaulting to technology. This isn't a small task, and any parent with children home right now would tell you that. Baking is a great way to practice motor skills, how to follow directions, or for teaching more complex topics like fractions, calculating cooking times, and patience.
While we're collectively grappling with the changes we're experiencing, now is an ideal time to try a new hobby or develop skills you may already have. Baking is a great way to reduce stress, create, communicate to loved ones, and entertain all age groups. We may be stuck at home right now, and things might be different, but it's also an opportunity to get in the kitchen and bake up something delicious!
