A few tricks for making cookies with a baby in the house:
1. Let her watch the mixer and the measuring


2. Let her “help” by playing with her own measuring cup.


3. Talk to her as much as possible, teaching her about fractions (measuring) and chemical change (baking) and traditions (grandma’s recipes).

4. When the time comes to preheat the oven, make sure there are 2-3 extra adults around to help juggle baby and oven timer and dirty dishes!
