The mess and stress of baking with kids can take away the fun, so being prepared is a must. Depending on your child’s age, prepping just a few things ahead of time can make all the difference and bring joy back to a family tradition. One of my favorite things to make ahead is pie dough.

    IMG_4162 OS LO25 A couple of years ago, we had a play date on St. Patrick’s Day with my cousin and her children. They came bearing St. Patrick’s Day decor and Irish potato candy. The “potatoes” were delicious and were wrinkled and dimpled just like real potatoes! We had a little lunch, dessert, play time and craft time–all in all, a splendid little afternoon!
