Nothing makes your home feel cozier than the smell of homemade goodies baking in the oven. Baking also teaches your child real-world math skills, organization, and how to follow directions. Next time he's in the mood for a tasty breakfast treat, try whipping up some homemade drop scones!

What You Need:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg

What You Do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F.
  2. Have him combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Cut the butter into small pieces and help your child work it into the flour mixture with his fingers, until the texture resembles fine crumbs.
  4. Add the raisins to the mixture.
  5. Show him how to beat the egg and milk together; have him add this liquid to the flour mixture. Stir until combined well.
  6. Using an ice-cream scoop or a large spoon, help him drop 12 equal portions onto a greased baking sheet.
  7. Bake until golden, about 13 minutes.
  8. Remove from baking sheet to cooling rack.
  9. Serve warm, with butter and jam if desired.
