The baby and toddler days have gone by at our house. Now that only happens when little friends or baby nieces visit.
But one of the many fun and helpful handy things about older kids is all the help that they are and all the things they can easily do themselves. My little people used to like to help ice cookies and cupcakes. It was fun, but it also took some work and effort and there was always messes to clean up. Now my older kids make short work of mixing up and icing cupcakes. They still think it’s lots of fun to pull out icing and sprinkles now and then.
I just sat back and took pictures. My daughter counted out cupcakes so they’d each have half to frost. Wonderful help and yummy treats!
