Baking  

Kids generally love baking, but following a recipe is tough when you can’t read!  Kylie at How We Montessori didn’t want this to be a blocker for her independent young chef, so she created a pictorial version of a muffin recipe. This recipe card was easy for her son to follow and he could tick off the ingredients as he used them. Of course, your kid will need some help at first, but with repeated attempts of the same recipe, they'll soon become proficient at using measuring cups and adding all the ingredients on their own.

Make this activity even more productive by having them make a muffin recipe for their school lunch to get another chore squared away.
