Well I let the girls bake cookies this morning. They decided on smarties and mini marshmallow cookies and away we went. They did mostly everything but use the beaters (Elayna even did a great job on cracking the egg) and when we were done, they wanted to keep going with lots more ideas on what to make. I guess I'll have to add aprons to my sewing list for them this year and encourage this helpfulness in the kitchen (might come in handy as they get older).
Alyssa just discovered puff snacks for toddlers and she could literally live off of them - she loves them that much! (and the Heinz brand is on sale at Safeway this week so I bought 3 of the 4 flavours for her - should last a little while).
