“‘Let's bake!’ My daughter Emma jumps for joy when she hears these two little words. And as a big time kindergartener, she takes great pleasure in working independently. She wants to 'read' the directions, measure and mix ingredients without my help, and she now is an expert egg cracker.

Given Emma’s passion for baking, we were thrilled to learn about Zebra Mix baking kits. These fun, creative, and educational culinary activities are great for kids (ages 4-12) who want to take baking to the next level. Three kits are available - chocolate chip cookie, brownie bites, and cupcake & frosting - the kits contain all the dry ingredients (wholesome and certified 70% organic) and a large instructional Safari Baking Map.

And the map is what really makes this product so much more than just a baking experience. The Safari Baking Map is a large, colorful, fold out with easy to follow, interactive step-by-step illustrated instructions with entertaining word games, math, and science challenges. Kids are encouraged to learn while stirring up the fun. Each map is double sided with two levels of instructions and learning activities. Level 1 (ages 4-9) is for nonreaders, beginning readers, and experienced readers. Level 2 is for ages 9 and up. Children are visually engaged through all of the steps of the baking process - from washing hands to cleaning the dishes when finished. There even is a check box for each step for your child to mark when the step is complete. And a bonus for busy parents is that the map doubles as an oversized place mat for the workspace. When finished with the baking, simply toss the map and the mess is gone!

Emma had more fun baking with Zebra Mix than I ever could have imagined. These kits serve perfectly as a supervised activity for one, or for play dates, visits with grandparents, rainy day activities, vacations, baby-sitter night, or any other reason you can dream up.

Oh, and did I mention that the results are delicious?”
