- Following directions
- measuring and counting
- recalling past lessons....the applesauce was homemade so we discussed the applesauce we made as well.
- and more....
Bear did most of the measuring, pour, mixing, and more on her own. All I really did was read the recipe for her and point out what was what when she needed it. Such a big helper!
