We decided to make brownies the other day (from a mix).
E wanted to make them all by himself.
He very VERY carefully read the directions on the back of the box.
STEP ONE: Grease (or use cooking spray) the bottom of the pan
I watched as he turned the pan upside down and aimed the spray can at the "bottom" of the pan!
Before he could actually spray the bottom of the pan - I stopped him, turned the pan right side up, and smiled.
He smiled back, understanding his mistake.
From that point on he did everything all by himself.
The brownies were FANTASTIC!!
