Many children received a Little Miss Muffin doll for Christmas or Hanukah, and these kids are eager to have some fun in the kitchen-- perhaps to make some treats for a Great American Bakesale fundraiser.

Children love to help in the kitchen -- stirring, mixing and watching culinary creations come to life. Moms know that dangers lurk around each corner and a little precaution goes a long way in keeping everyone safe, so Little Miss Muffin offers the following tips for safe fun in the kitchen.

Pick Easy Recipes for Youngsters: MyLittleMissMuffin.com offers a variety of simple recipes for young children from fingerpainting on poundcake to mixing homemade playdough. More advanced mini chefs might enjoy layering a red, white, and blueberry parfait with strawberry and vanilla yogurt sprinkled with fruit on top.

Choose Age Appropriate Activities: Consider the age of the child when deciding which part of the process they can handle. Cooks know how easily a knife can get slip and quickly slice through palms and little fingers.

Provide Distractions During Difficult Steps: If a child is extra inquisitive and won’t steer clear when the real cooking and prep work begins, hand them a cooking friendly toy like a durable and washable Little Miss Muffin doll or a stack of plastic bowls and wooden spoons. Buy a fun shaped timer and mini-kitchen toys for extra fun.

Watch Your Ingredients: Make sure not to leave anything out that can go bad out on the counter for long periods. Bacteria can grow quickly in a warm house, despite your best intentions and kids love to lick the bowl, another dangerous habit with raw ingredients.
