With this article we wanted to share with you some weekend baking ideas that are fun for the whole family. These projects are perfect for those weekend days when your kids are bored and the weather may be a struggle outside – alternatively it might be the school holidays and you are just looking for something else for your kids to do. We know most parents are always looking for weekend and holiday activities occasionally.
These 7 options can keep your kids entertained for hours and, best of all, they get to eat the end result for the project. From cookies, to muffins and everything in between we’ve got you covered. Best of all, you can get all the ingredients you need from the shops at Somerville Plaza.
Cookies – Cookies are one of the best baking activities that you can share with your kids. There are so many flavours you can bake – chocolate and peanut butter just to name two. You can make this activity even more fun by purchasing a cookie cutter in your kid’s favourite shapes to make the experience even more enjoyable.
Brownies – Nothing tastes better than a rich chocolate brownie. Their fudgy texture and chocolate flavour make them a favoured treat. They are also incredibly easy to make and will last for a long time.
Cakes – Another baking project you may want to try with your kids is to bake a cake. There are so many flavours. Chocolate, caramel, lemon and more. You can add a layer of whipped cream and a lather of icing as well. You can even make delicious tasting vegan cakes with the right ingredients.
Banana or Pumpkin Bread – Have you got a few bananas sitting in the fruit bowl that may be a little overripe? Don’t throw them out. These bananas are perfect for a healthy banana bread – delicious and irresistible. If banana bread doesn’t take your fancy you may want to try pumpkin bread instead. You won’t be able to stop at just one slice.
Baked Donuts – Another great treat that your kids will love is a baked donut. They look fun and they taste fun. These tasty treats are perfect to share with friends – especially if your kids are having friends over at some stage over the weekend or over the holidays.
Cinnamon Rolls – If you are looking for a more exotic baking project, you might want to try baking a cinnamon roll. Looking at them, you may think it’s a challenging baking activity but cinnamon rolls are easier than you think. With a slather of brown sugar and cinnamon, these rolls are soft, delicious and gooey.
Muffins – Last but not least you should take a look at baking some muffins with your kids. Choc Chip and blueberry are some of the more popular muffins out there, as are lemon and others. You can experiment with different flavours and muffins also make a great lunchbox snack.
