The kids have been having a great time getting ready for Valentine’s Day by making heart shaped cupcakes this week. Baking is such a great activity as it requires cognitive skills like planning, following directions, sequencing, verbal and visual processing while also developing fine motor skills and offering great opportunities to explore the sensory system using touch, smell, and taste.
