Spring break was over just a week ago. As usual, the vacation lasted for two weeks and our kids had so much fun. I admit, the spring break will be costly if the parents will enroll their kids in a variety of outdoor activities like the spring break camp, which normally run for a week from 9am-5pm and cost almost $200, actually it varies in location and the activities to be tackled. There are also short sport activities and arts schools that await for the children. This year’s Spring Break, we didn’t enroll the kids in any paid Spring Break programs, so  if you are a mom, I am pretty sure you can imagine how busy the days are when you are with the children.

In order to get rid of the kids’ boredom and avoid hearing phrases from them such as “I am so bored mommy, what shall I do?” Well, mom must take action. Despite of the presence of legos, books, etc., yet they still want my attention. Sorry, television and gadgets (like tablet, etc.) are prohibited for babysitting our children at home.

One of the boredom eliminators I did for them is baking. Please refer to the images on how fun they executed every step of the way.

Spring Break Activity: Baking

Our kids both love to cook, they often uttered to me that they’ll join the Canada chef when they grow up. They become inspired when they saw the kids on television cooking and having fun.

This time I let them make donut and cupcake. They do the beating of the eggs, measuring and mixing the ingredients, till pouring of the batter into the baking pans.

I was amazed that they don’t complain about the weight of  the hand mixer they used here because I usually do complain when I use it, due to the heavy weight. These kids, they don’t want to stop beating. lol! In fact, it appears  so much fun for them. ha ha ha!
