Preschool Bakers: Pumpkin Scone Recipe

Pumpkin Scone Recipe

Chook and I had so much fun making this pumpkin scone recipe together. It is a great recipe to make together with children. Everything goes into one bowl and you’re allowed to get your hands into the mix and get messy! This pumpkin scone recipe made enough for one morning tea for our family of six.

When baking with preschoolers or with several children I like to have all the equipment and ingredients ready to go on the bench. Having a back-up activity is a good idea too when kids start to wander or lose interest.
