Preschool children learn best by experiencing and by doing. Baking bread with children is the perfect way to stimulate the developing mind and actively engage all the senses.
Bread making is fun, but also a very practical, real life activity with great educational potential. It’s well known that cooking activities help develop many skills in the young child:
- mathematics (sequencing, measuring, estimating)
- simple science
- taking turns
- listening to instructions
- fine motor skills of mixing, pouring, shaking, cutting
- language skills
- enjoyment of cooking something for themselves
Make bread offers Bread making incursions where all kids have the opportunity to actively participate by touching and smelling the ingredients, kneading the dough, watching it raise and shaping into a loaf/roll. The best part, of course, is eating freshly baked bread!
“On Friday 11th June we had Vesna from “Make Bread“ join us to bake bread, pizzas and grissini. The children loved the high participation level of this activity from mixing the ingredients, watching the yeast activate and the bread rise, rolling out the dough, cooking it and of course eating their results. It proved to be a great activity.”
