One added trick that I do when baking/cooking with little ones is one I call the "cooking show trick". While the children are busy playing/napping/washing hands/etc, I premeasure out most of the ingredients and put the measured amounts into individual bowls/cups/etc. This way, they stay interested (most toddlers/preschoolers I've cooked with get quickly bored measuring everything out...especially if there is more than one child involved!!).
