baking binder

We started this last year but didn't really follow through with it.
So the kiddos have been asking to do it all summer
so we took a regular white binder we found at good will
added a few labels to it and made a spreadsheet for each kiddo
They have to bake 10 things
breads, muffins, desserts, dips, dinner items, cakes, pies, cookies, cupcakes,
at least one of each category
 3 times
First time with mom doing it all and they are by my side
Second time they do it with me by their side
3rd time they do it all by themselves
Then once they do all the things on their whole spreadsheet they have to make us dinner all by themselves and serve it to us....

Odin made blueberry muffins because we had fresh blueberries but none of them like blueberry muffins so we ended up giving them to our neighbors
Jonah made chocolate Zucchini muffins and bread 
Olivia and Miah made chocolate chip muffins which we always make
They also have to do the dishes after and clean up their mess
I forgot to take more pictures because it was like a baking marathon morning that day
Everyone did great  except for me
I never follow the recipe or measure so it was hard to teach them to do that!

this little big man just tried everything!
