Summer Baking Fun with Kids

Summer baking might just be the best way to get your little ones into the kitchen and having a blast! Finding activities to keep them entertained as the summer stretches on can be tough, and it’s often a challenge to teach them new skills during the hectic school year.
So why not make the most of summer and dive into some baking fun?
Kids love getting messy and munching on tasty treats, making summer baking the perfect activity they'll genuinely enjoy. Plus, it's a fantastic way to teach them some valuable skills.


Looking for some help getting your kids excited about summer baking? We've got you covered with tips that make summer baking as fun for them as it is a great learning opportunity.

Tip #1 - Keep Baking Simple

Baking might seem like a chore to us grown-ups, but kids love every part of it! While older kids might be up for more challenging recipes, younger ones will benefit from keeping things super easy in the kitchen.
Our mixes are a breeze to use, needing just a couple of ingredients to whip up something delicious.
If you're cooking up breakfast, our breakfast mixes only need water. Yep, that's it—your kids will be little chefs in no time.

Tip #2 - Let Them Own the Baking Experience

Kids are usually told what to do, so letting them take the reins in the kitchen can be a thrill. Let them share their ideas and tailor what they’re baking to their taste buds.
For example, if your summer baking includes our Lehi Mills Brownie Mix, let them decide what to add or how to frost the brownies. You might be surprised by their creativity!
And if they’re ready for it, let them choose every meal for the day. They'll be more invested and even picky eaters might just eat what’s on the menu because they chose it.

Tip #3 - Assign Baking Responsibilities

Whether you’re baking with one child or a whole bunch, giving them specific responsibilities can boost their confidence and help them learn.
Whether it’s adding the extra ingredients to a Lehi Mills Muffin Mix or being in charge of flipping those fluffy Lehi Mills Buttermilk Pancakes, you can find tasks that match their age and abilities.

Tip #4 - Make Them Head Chef

No matter the age, kids love being in charge. Pick a day of the week for each child to be the “head chef.” If you have multiple children, rotate days so everyone gets a turn to lead in the kitchen.

Tip #5 - Enjoy

Things might get a little messy, but remember, it’s all part of the fun. Enjoy the experience and the memories you're creating. And with Lehi Mills Mixes, you’re guaranteed an easy-to-make, flavorful dish that you’ll love as much as your kids.
