Baking with Kids: Including Math

Ingredient assignments at baking class.

Have you ever noticed how math problems always pop up when baking and cooking?⁠ With kids in the kitchen, this is a great opportunity to practice what they're learning in school.

For example, when younger school age kids attend our classes, we may throw out a word problem such as this:

If there are nine ingredients in the recipe and eight kids in the class each get assigned an ingredient, how many leftover ingredients are there?⁠💬⁠ ⁠

For older kids there are opportunities for practicing fractions such as this:⁠

If the recipe calls for one and one fourth cups of buttermilk and we need to double that, how much would that be?💬 ⁠

Whether at home with parents or in baking classes with Itty Bitty Bakers, math skills are needed!⁠

Drop your kid's answers to the questions above in the comments below (right, wrong, or funny!) and we'll send you a class coupon code!🎉
