We've had a lot of baking to do this month. No one (well at least not ME) wants my girls sneezy, grubby, dirty, sticky hands all over their cookies. But they love to help. So I gave them each a cookie sheet and a bowl of flour and let them 'help'. I gave them cookie dough at some point too. They LOVED 'baking' and I got a ton done. They also got to eat the cookies - and they are indeed hooked. That's all they want Santa to bring this year!
