5 Treats To Make With Kids While Stuck At Home

Anyone else turn straight to baking this week with all the kids home? We sure did! Baking and making treats is such a great activity to do with kids. Not only is it yummy, but it can be a great educational activity as well! Sure, some of the recipes in this list don’t even require the oven so maybe they’re not considered “baking.” But they all provide opportunities for kids to practice some life skills, gain some fine motor development, or acquire math skills by measuring and counting. Let us know which treat is your favorite to make with kids!

Banana Bread

I’ve seen a LOT of people post pictures of banana bread since we’ve all been at home, self included! It’s easy and delicious no matter what recipe you use. This is one that I’ve used for a while and I love it! Comment below if you have a favorite banana bread recipe!

Joanna Gaines’ Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just love Joanna! There are about a million and one chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, but I would definitely choose this one. Plus, check out this cute video of Joanna making these cookies and a skillet cookie version while stuck at home right now!

Muddy Buddies (Puppy Chow)

I can’t make these at home because my oldest has a peanut allergy, but our studio manager Meg LOVES to make these! Her insider tip: use extra chocolate chips to get a better coating on the Chex cereal and no need to measure the powdered sugar, just eye ball it and add more if you need it!

Rice Krispie Treats

This is a family fave of ours for sure! I love that it’s so quick and easy to make and my two older kids love helping! I usually just follow the recipe on the back of the cereal box, but I found this recipe that adds a little vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. I’m excited to try it out!

Healthy No-Bake Cookies

Because of the peanut allergy in my house, I’ll have to sub almond butter in this recipe. But I love this as a healthier option for a treat! It’s sweetened with honey, or you can use maple syrup. Either way, better than loads of sugar!
