Did you know that teaching children how to make holiday cookies can help kids develop self-confidence?
That’s right. Any time your kids have an opportunity to learn something new and to create something exciting it builds self-confidence. And what can be more exciting for a young child than baking and decorating holiday cookies!
Many people don’t realize that self-confidence is a skill that can be developed.
One of the best ways to help kids develop self-confidence is to give them opportunities to learn something new — to challenge themselves and stretch outside of their comfort zone. Succeeding at something new leads to a sense of accomplishment which, in turn, builds self-confidence.
Give your children as many opportunities to be successful as you can find.
Start small with things like putting together a simple model, making a tie-dye t-shirt, and yes, making holiday cookies. Even household activities such as raking the front lawn, folding their own laundry, and setting the table can help kids develop self-confidence. Remember that success begets success. And it just might be yummy, too.
Enjoy connecting over the holidays with your kids!
