One of my favorite memories from childhood is baking molasses cookies with my mom. I loved the process of mixing the dough (perfect time to sneak in my fair share of bites) and peeking inside the oven every 3 minutes. Now that I’ve grown up, I find myself feeling grateful for the memories I got to share with my mom in the kitchen (I still make those same cookies 20 years later!). I compiled a list of 10 super cute spring recipes that are easy to make with the kiddos and will allow them to create memories of their own. Plus, these fun recipes will boost their creativity and work on their fine motor skills.
1. Pretzel flower bites
2. Spring marshmallow crispy treats
3. Fruit pizza crackers
4. Sugar cookie puppy chow
No, we don’t mean the dog food. If you’ve never had the sweet & salty goodness of human puppy chow, try this recipe with a sugar cookie twist. Trust us, it’s one of those treats that will disappear right before your eyes.
5. Apple "donuts"
Donuts without the guilt? Sign us up! Kids will love decorating these with the colored cream cheese and sprinkles. You can make variations of these “donuts” by swapping the cream cheese for peanut butter or honey.

6. Carrot cake bites
7. Frozen yogurt berry pies
8. Banana sushi
9. Rainbow fruit cup
If you’re a family constantly on the move, these simple rainbow fruit cups will be a lifesaver. Buy fruit in bulk and encourage your child to practice their colors as they build a rainbow.
