Safe Baking for Kids

Baking Box for Kids-Safety instructions

Baking brings smiles for kids that love baked goods (cookies and pies and cakes!) and that is why the Kidstir “Bake Me Happy” kit is a favorite. Here are some tips to make baking safer.

  • Always ask a grown-up to bake with you.
  • Turn the oven knob to the temperature listed in the recipe.
  • Preheat the oven for 15 minutes so it’s nice and hot. Otherwise, your food will take longer to bake, or cook evenly.
  • Don’t open the oven door t check your food until it is almost done. The temperature drops every time the door opens.
  • Always use pot holders (like your new Puppy Pot Holder!) when putting pans into – and out of – the oven.
  • When the timer goes off, a grown-up can help take the food out of the hot oven.
  • Remember to switch off the oven when you are done baking.


If this infographic wasn’t quite enough to satisfy your hunger for baking, take a look at our baking measurements video for some helpful measuring tips. Be sure to review our special cookie Baking with kids tips before you warm up the oven to get started. It will help to understand the following:

  • Stock up on baking supplies
  • Add to your cookie cutter collection
  • Review cookie baking basics with the kids
  • Share homemade cookies as gifts!

Once you’ve baked up all those goodies, you may want a few good bake sale ideas.

  1. Sweet Sticks
  2. Brownie Bundles
  3. Muffin Madness
  4. Gluten-free Zone

Then you’ll need to print up a sign for your bake sale.
