    If you want to make pizzas do them on Warburton square wraps. My niece and nephew loved making their own. It's easy as you just as puree on wrap. Any topping and cheese or make your own bases if you want haha x

    Why not make real
    Cake... It's not hard from scratch.

    Or something like rice crispy cakes

    banana cake! If you beat the egg and mash the banana and melt the butter before your toddler joins you then you literally mix it all of the ingredients together there's no difficult 'creaming' or anything.

    google banana cake and choose a well reviewed 4 or 5 star recipe and you probably cant go wrong. You can even reduce the cooking time.by making into muffins instead of a single cake.

    Just basic biscuits can be fun. Not many ingredients and they can get their hands in for a mix, and then cut out different shapes.

    My wee girl loves making cakes. Doing them from scratch isn't much more work than the packets and they definitely taste better!xx

    Thanks for the ideas.

    I use to love decorating biscuits when I was younger, completely forgot about that. Banana muffins sound yummy, definitely going to give them a try xx

    We love the pizzas. Pancakes are nice as well. I let my son 'measure' ingredients and he always butters the cake tin. He loves to help with other cooking as well: he has his own plastic knife and when I cut vegetables he cuts with his plastic knife. Mostly he gets plastic toy vegetables, but sometimes something soft like a few mushrooms or a banana. Afterwards, he can stir with a big spoon before I put the food on the fire. They really love to help at this age. Have fun! :)
