We stared out by mashing up the bananas. They each took turns squishing them up while saying "squish squish squish" as they smashed.
Next we added the water.
Then the oil...and yes I actually did let them pour it and neither of them spilled.
Then we added the flour mixture and the boys stirred that in for me as well. This was the messiest step of our baking adventure. They would look at the spoons and shake them around. Getting some on the floor, and on the dogs, but none on their shirts!
Finally we poured the batter into the pans and got it ready to go in the oven. There would be a picture of the little chefs with the finished product, but one of them got sleepy and had to take a nap before it was done. Cooking can really wear you out!
