Uses a hot oven
Requires kitchen appliances, like a mixer
There's nothing that will get your kids to listen to you more than if there is the promise of dessert at the end. Yummy Bug Cakes are a delicious and fun way to help kids learn the importance of cleaning up after themselves and washing their hands.
While baking with your kids:
- Teach your kids to wash their hands frequently—always wash hands before cooking and eating.
- Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds—the time it takes to sing The Happy Birthday Song twice.
- Show them how you properly clean up after they've used the kitchen. Use disinfectants to target hotspots like the kitchen faucets, refrigerator handles, and countertops.
