it may be a little seasonal but my kids loved making pumpkin spice cookies and its easy 2 ingredients! 1 box spice cake and 1 sm can pumpkin pie filling. mix together and drop by spoonfulls and bake at 350 10min or so. you can flatten them down a bit to make them a little more attractive and dust with powdered sugar.

Try a yogurt parfait with berries and cheerios or granola. Super easy. Just layer the ingredients in a glass or mug. Your toddler can help you pour the ingredients in the cups, and then top with whipped cream or something like that. My kids love them. We even have them for breakfast sometimes (minus the whipped cream) with yogurt, cheerios and strawberries or raspberries. Super yummy! And, no baking whatsoever. Also, an easy to make dessert like rice crispy squares is good and fun to make with a little one.

Fruit filled crescent pockets are easy and fun. Apples and cinnamon are a favorite at our house. My boys could peel the apples with apple peeler, sprinkle cinnamon and help fold and seal them up. We also did strawberries and blueberries. :) Or, what about fruit kabobs?

Pudding pie. Whip up your favorite pudding and pour it into a graham crust. Top with whipped cream.

make rice krispy treats with peanut butter etc...can put some healthy snacks in them and he can pound away on them and get a kick out of licking them off his fingers...he can even make popcorn balls...I make them like rice krispy treats but with popcorn which is healthier...can also mix it and put crisco or non stick spray and let him put it in a bundt pan...let it sit a little while and then dump it on a plate...he'll have a blast.

No Bake Cookies allow your little one help pour dry ingredients and stir together. Bake some sugar cookies (Tube type) and let child help frost and decorate.

I love hearing about little ones helping in the kitchen. It can be so much fun!!! I have found that just about anything that you do, they are able to help with, as long as you have some patience and know you'll be dealing with a little more mess than usual.

I use this pudding pie recipe for my kids cooking class. It's always a hit.

Enjoy!
Pudding Pie
1 prepared graham cracker crust or Oreo crust
1 large package instant pudding
1.5 cups milk
1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided

Whisk milk and pudding together in large bowl. Gently fold in 1 cup whipped topping. Pour into pie plate. Carefully top with remaining topping. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
