Research shows that smell is the sense with the strongest link to emotions and memory. We all have a childhood memory tied to the delicious smells of baking. We marvelled at dough and batter rising and browning in the oven. We’ve licked countless spatulas clean of icing. And we all wanted that first cookie fresh off the rack – burnt fingers and tongues notwithstanding! Indeed, baked goods will always have a special place in the hearts of young and old alike. Recreate that sense of wonder for the little ones in your life with the gift of a personalised children’s baking set.
A personalised children’s baking set is more than just a toy. In fact, every piece is fully functional and made to fit small hands perfectly. There’s no worry about full-sized bowls and utensils slipping from a child’s grasp – which will surely put a smile on any parent’s face. What’s more, every kid loves the thought of something made just for them. Your child will marvel at these very grown-up trays and tools that are just their size. With their name on every piece, your little one will be delighted to receive a truly one-of-a-kind gift that is undeniably theirs. Feel free to think less about broken mixing bowls and more about making something scrumptious with someone you love!
Getting kids interested in baking is more than an excuse to bring more sweet treats into the home. This is a year where families have spent more time at home than ever before. Instead of wasting those hours alone and glued to a screen, spend them together! An afternoon of baking is a perfect activity for bonding and building relationships. It’s a great opportunity to pass on the recipes of your youth and keep family traditions alive. It’s also the perfect time to make some new family traditions of your own.
Just as importantly, baking with your little ones is a chance to teach them a new skill. Baking teaches children how to follow instructions and use simple math and measurements. It also teaches independence and encourages kids to take part in the goings-on of the kitchen. Best of all, baking teaches children not to be afraid of getting messy (and how to clean up when they do!). Baking is the formula for a wonderful teachable moment: it’s one part science, one part math, and all deliciousness.
In sum, if you’re looking for a gift that is practical, educational, truly unique, and unforgettable, a personalised children’s baking set ticks all the boxes. Give the children in your life the gift of helping to create new memories to give joy for years to come.
