If your little one likes to poke his nose as you’re fussing about the kitchen, or follows Masterchef Junior with wide eyes, perhaps it’s time to introduce him to baking for real. It’s never early to start, and if you’re worried about messing up your own kitchen – or don’t have the skills yourself – sign them up for baking classes specially for kids.

It’s a great way for your child to learn about food safety and be exposed to different flavours and textures, and he’ll have a ball of a time digging into his sweet treats afterwards. Here are some of the most affordable kids’ baking classes in Singapore from just $28 per class, with nothing above $50.


1. Genius R Us – from $30/class

There are separate for kids aged 5 to 12, and toddlers below 5 so that everyone gets to learn at a suitable pace. The latter category allows entry for one accompanying parent too. Package prices start from $30/class depending on the category and number of classes bought.

The Little Things gives you flexibility in signing up for a la carte classes, instead of having to commit to whole packages. This is great for kids who are just starting out in the kitchen, and don’t know if baking is something they would have sustained interest in.

Here, they follow a “self-savvy” concept, where they guide kids along and make sure safety is upheld without micromanaging too much – perfect for free-spirited children who like doing things in their own creative ways. A more hands-on approach that allows for some imagination and experimentation would also allow them to learn better.

Parent-toddler workshops are available for those with younger tots who need additional help.

Classes range from $35 – $75 depending on complexity of the item, but generally you can find a good range of them at $52. Some examples of items your child will learn to make include cake pops, shepherd’s pie, and banana meringue. From time to time they also have vegan treats up on the class schedule, such as chocolate amaretti cookies and raspberry scones.
