Fun Baking Recipes for Mothers and Daughters - Apple Pie

by Tina Bryant 26 Oct 2018

For moms looking for ways to connect with their daughters and create more memories, baking is a genius way to spend some quality time together. You’ll have a mutual project to work on together and of course, a sweet reward at the end that definitely keep her engaged no matter what age she is. The great thing is, this is something that works for daughters of almost any age - as long as they’re old enough to pass you ingredients in the kitchen and to stir some batter or dough, baking is a great mother daughter bonding activity. An added benefit here is that not only will you be creating memories, strengthening your mother-daughter bond and even starting some family traditions; you’ll be teaching her a valuable life skill that she can carry on with her for years to come. Showing her how to bake also opens up a template for her that sets the foundation for future creativity! Once she gets the basics down, as she gets older, she’ll start modifying existing recipes and start creating her own. And of course, who doesn’t love freshly baked treats? It’s a win - win ….. Win - win situation across the board. So roll up those sleeves and start baking!
