How does your tween make you feel every time you are in the kitchen? Or better still, is she interested that, as you bake cupcakes, she helps assemble the ingredients and tries her hand beating up the batter independently?

At the age of 9-12, your tween is really starting to develop their own hobbies and interests, and making their own kitchen creations can be a favorite for many girls in particular.
