Baking teaches them so many things! Hand-eye coordination, fractions, reading, and PATIENCE.
We make a lot of things with melting chocolate. It is so versatile, comes in so many colors and flavors and is fun to work with. The pen is nice because it makes it easy for kids to make small chocolate molds without squeezing the bag or having a lot of chocolate flow out of the bottle. We made tons of cute little characters (it comes with 50 molds), had fun writing words and drawing shapes to harden and stick on the cupcakes, and even decorated the cupcakes directly with the chocolate pen.

Note: The pen has an on/off switch to eliminate messes. We found that turning it off about 1 second before you are done worked best to prevent any overflowing.
We made an entire batch of deliciously cute cinnamon bun cupcakes, all topped with chocolate. Here are some of our favorites:
