How can my kids help?  Have them help you sift the flour.  They can help whisk the ingredients together too.  They can also push in all the extra m&m's before baking.  That was my kid's favorite part ;)
Blondies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to five days. The bars may also be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week.
