Children's Baking Business Business Overview:

If your child loves making cookies, brownies or muffins, helping him or her start a children’s baking business is a fun way to teach valuable business skills. All children enjoy helping mom in the kitchen and older children can even do most of the work on their own. Teenagers can make baked goods from start to finish without parents’ help at all. Selling baked goods is the perfect first business idea for a budding epicurean and entrepreneur. Your child can set up a table in the front of your house or in a more crowded location like a neighborhood garage sale or park. A large sign and some balloons will help draw attention to the delicious treats. Your child may want to build their business even more quickly and go door-to-door selling their goods. Be sure to have an adult or teen accompany the younger child on this part of the business venture. Have your child concentrate on one item they make particularly well at first like chocolate chip cookies or pumpkin bread. Then, as their skills progress, they can add more items to the menu – muffins, brownies, lemon bars, etc. Maybe they will find that one item sells better than the others and they can make more of that item. This will teach the concept of supply and demand. Youngsters will also learn how to work with money and the importance of good manners and customer service. Baked treats are always a big draw and starting a children’s baking business is a good way to spend time with your children while they learn skills that will last a lifetime.
