Anyone else crazy enough to bake with a preschooler?

Nikki NYC | Dec 8, 201406:10 PM     48

I have been baking with my 3 year old for over a year. As soon as he sees me taking out ingredients and measuring, he pulls over a kitchen chair and announces that he will be helping. Fortunately, it is (usually) lots of fun. We recently discovered Master Chef Junior and now have "competitions" with imaginary people (guess who always wins). His favorites are cut out cookies and M&M cookies, and we made up a recipe for a "strawberry whipped cream pie" that was his concept. So, what do you bake with your preschooler?
