What can your child learn from it?

Your little chefs can develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination while clapping and mimicking baking actions. The song also offers a delightful way to teach simple vocabulary and rhymes. Cooking up fun and skills? Talk about a tasty combo!

It’s a good tool for practicing English, too!

Try doing the patting and clapping actions with some playdough. Or how about creating your own pretend kitchen? Assign roles — baker, customer, taste-tester — and switch ‘em up!

You can also replace the word “baby” with people and friends’ names that you know.

So, come on, future MasterChefs! Put on your pretend aprons and let’s bake some happiness!  Who knew that a simple rhyme could whip up so much joy and learning?
