Looking for a really simple baking recipe to do with the kids? You only need one bowl to make this easy blueberry muffins recipe with blueberries, flour, sugar, vanilla, and vegetable oil. 

Letting your kids bake with you is great for their maths skills by helping them learn about measurements and about number concepts in real life. Let them count out eggs and cups of flour. Let them measure liquids and use measuring spoons, and just expose them to the concepts of math in real life.
