It isn’t easy keeping kids entertained when they’re stuck at home, but baking is a fun (and tasty) activity that all the family can get involved with.


Deciding what to bake can be a headache in itself and rolling pins and other equipment are often too big for little hands to manage, meaning you end up doing the most of the work yourself.

To help you get started and, most importantly, make sure kids can really get stuck in, we’ve had a look at some of the top children’s baking sets out there. There's equipment-only sets all well as one with recipe books and even DIY display stands included.

From dinosaur mixing spoons and personalised aprons to mermaid cupcakes and gummy bear jelly sweets, there’s a baking kit to tickle everyone's taste buds.

Here's our pick of the best children's baking sets...
