Baking with Children (Pssst! There's Math Involved!)


My two little ones enthusiastically helped me bake pumpkin/craberry/raisin muffins this evening and I had a super AHA! Montessori breakthrough/realization/epiphany. Baking with kids is such a great opportunity to acquire applied math skills! We had a fraction breakthrough with my five-year-old using measurement cups; she was so excited. Plus, learning math is way more fun when you have a Moomin apron to do it in! Thanks Kaisa!
