Finding the ideal baking gifts for toddlers and pre-schoolers makes your gift list so much easier. These gifts are perfect for parents, grandparents, aunties, godmothers and so on.
Why do baking supplies make such great Christmas presents? Because they come with the promise of quality sticky fingered time with your little one!
Baking is a lovely messy creative activity to do with the preschooler in your life. You bond, you laugh, you eat too much sugar. It’s just a lot of fun.
If you want to keep things simple, these Jumbo Silicone Muffin Cups in a Storage Jar, by Pantry Elements, are a great place to start. Of course they are re-usable, so that’s great – but I find the silicone muffin cups much easier for pre-schoolers to work with than the paper versions. These would make a great stocking filler too.
Taking things up a notch with biscuit cutters, how about these cute tins with numbers and letters in? What a cute gift! I would give the numbers to toddlers and the letters to pre-schoolers. What better way to learn to spell your own name?!
Ok, this next suggestion is on my list for my kids. I LOVE anything that encourages involvement and confidence for kids in the kitchen. Check out these gorgeous personalized aprons… They’re available in different colors.
Next up: very cute sugar shapes for topping cookies and cakes. I really like these colors – they are so bright and fun! It makes a change from the usual pastel colors for sugar shapes. This will make a great stocking filler for little ones.
Baking gifts for 4 year olds and older
And now for something a little bit quirky, but for the right person, the best.present.ever. Now you can make cookies covered with cats and pie crust covered with cats and brownies covered with cats – you get the idea! This is a Cat Pattern Embossed Rolling Pin. This would be a great gift for a little one aged 4 and upwards – you need a little more motor skills to roll the dough hard enough, but not too hard.
These Christmas Cookie Stencils (12 pieces) are so beautiful. They would make such a satisfying baking project to make with an older child. What a great tradition to start at Christmas time! I love traditions that involve quality time. And eating 🙂
Here’s an similar idea but without the holiday focus: Breadtopia Stencils (Set of 5) Decoration for Breads, Cakes, and Pies. These are beautiful and creative, but not actually that difficult to do. Really effective and another great stocking filler with a difference.
Wishing you a very happy holidays with your little ones! And very happy baking times together 🙂
