Montessori Practical Life: Baking a Batch of Biscuits

This week for my practical life Friday series, I wanted to share an activity that I really love seeing Jerome help with, as the many steps offer so many good opportunities.

Trust me when I say this is one of the messier baking tasks for a toddler to help with
as the flour tends to get everywhere, but with the measuring, the rolling, the shape cutting, and the kneading, it is sure to be a hit.

{Measuring out the ingredients}

{Flouring the counter}

{Rolling out the dough}

{Cutting the dough into biscuits and arranging on the baking sheet}

{Rolling out the dough again}

{Cutting out the remainder of the dough}

{Wiping up the counter}

The biscuits definitely end up a little drier when he helps, due to the extra flour, kneading and slightly inaccurate measuring, and they always look a little lumpy, but it is so worth it.

Do you have any favorite recipes to bake with your toddler?
