Making granola with your child can be fun! Let your child measure and pour the ingredients into a bowl and stir everything together. Then, have them help spread the mixture onto a baking sheet. Don’t forget to chop or grind any nuts to ensure they’re safe for younger children. Once it’s baked, break the granola into bite-sized pieces. You can even toss them into a food processor to give you granola “sprinkles” that are easier to chew.
