Many times, it includes spending time in the kitchen - having fun - making memories - and passing on the German traditions in cooking and baking.
Recipes for kids to cook can mean several things. It all depends on the age of the children and on their capabilities. Almost any recipe can be done by kids - I enjoyed making yeast doughs at the age of 8, forming them into all sorts of shapes and cakes.
The easiest way to start encouraging your young cooks and bakers is to always have something they can do to help you.
Keep on the lookout for easy recipes for kids to cook and bake. My Sunday job was peeling potatoes for potato dumplings. Since I enjoyed eating them, I learned to appreciate the work that went into them.
Below are recipes for kids to cook that are extra easy or have "fun parts" that kids, even very young ones, can help with. It's not a big step to go from "helping out" to "doing it themselves". Always be there to teach how to do things safely.
I've categorized the recipes such as, Easy Kids Christmas Cookies Recipes, to make it easier to find ones you'll enjoy doing together. Read the recipe carefully to see what the kids can do. And then, let them do it. Let them read the recipe; teach them to measure; explain the steps. Have fun!
By the way, the two lovely ladies above are my two granddaughters, Alana and her rouladen at the top and Lydia with her twice-baked potatoes on the bottom. They are even featured in my eBook, Quick Fix Soups.
Later, it's time for a glass of milk and a cookie.
As you read through these recipes for kids to cook and bake, you will realize that kids can be helping in the kitchen regularly.
Just make it fun. As they learn to be comfortable around the kitchen tools, they may just surprise you with a breakfast in bed or a special German Sunday dinner.
Habt Spaß! (Have fun)

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?
This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.
How do I know?
Well, if I can do it, anyone can.
I've even figured out how I can help you.
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
