My children always remember to put their Chef outfits on before they enter the kitchen, along with making sure hair is tied back and washing hands.
Reading the kids baking recipes through with your child before you start will make things a little easier when it comes to baking as you can decide which parts your child can safely manage and which equipment they can use.
