by TerriRexson

Are you looking for great gifts for kids? Baking sets work well for girls and boys from toddlers to teens. Let's take a look at some of the best.

Baking Sets are a Great Kids Gift

Baking sets are a great gift for kids. Cooking is lots of fun and it's an important lifeskill too. Toddlers love cooking and it's important to keep this interest going as kids get older.

There are lots of fun kids baking sets that will get girls and boys in the kitchen having fun and learning useful skills while they are there. For teens it becomes a necessity once they head for college. 

Kids Bakeware Starter Kit

Toysmith Nonstick Bakeware Set

Baking is such a fun activity for toddlers and preschoolers. The Playful Chef set below is a lovely set which is designed for little kids age 3-5. It's got lots of great starter items and comes with recipe cards too. 

Kids will love having their own measuring cups and spoons. And you get kid-sized utensils. My favorite is the silicone brush - very versatile. Whenever I need to keep my helper occupied in the kitchen for a few minutes I ask them to brush something. They love oiling a baking pan for your!

For toddlers don't forget to add a long-sleeved apron. Then you won't need to worry about them getting messy while they do their stirring and mixing!

One of my favorite baking recipes for kids is mini chocolate donuts. Little baked ring donuts dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. Fun and easy.

I recommend a Kitchen Helper to keep little kids safe in the kitchen

A Kitchen Helper raises your toddler up to counter-top height to keep them safe in the kitchen while they help and join in. Choose from a range of kitchen helpers.

Kids from Kindergarten age upwards can do a lot more for themselves in the kitchen. They get a real sense of accomplishment by making a snack or treat for the family.

Older kids love these baking machines. They make a good option for tweens. My 10 year old niece got a cupcake machine for Christmas last year and loves it! Boys who like the Simpsons will enjoy the yellow donut machine!

The machines are fun and cheaper to run than heating up a big oven just for a small batch of cupcakes or donuts (I always feel guilty about that.) It's quicker too so kids don't have to wait so long to see (or eat!) the results. 

The Sunbean Cupcake and Donut makers get good reviews. Kids will love using them when they have friends over or at sleepovers and parties.
