5 simple snacks to make with your children

A few days ago, Education CS George Magoha, blamed the parents for the poor upbringing of their children. He urged them to spend time with their children and assign them chores in the homes to help shape them better

The CS had a point when he said that. We know have kids who cannot even make their own food or even bed just because they were not taught how to do that hence churning out unfunctional adults to society.

Children should be taught on the basic skill of life especially when they are on holidays. If you can afford to pay for the cooking lessons, that’s just fine but you can bond over baking time.

This gives you the opportunity to know your child and also impart a skill or two in then. That being said here are some simple recipes of snacks that you can try to make with your child over this festive season.
