Cooking

Children learn by touching, tasting, feeling, smelling, and listening. They love activities in the kitchen because they can use all their 

senses.

 

There are many ways to get kids involved in cooking. They can help prepare food by measuring, pouring, cutting, chopping, stirring, rolling and much more. Once prepared cooking the food can be magical, seeing it rise, thicken, melt and then the final result of how it tastes.

 

Cooking with children provides practical experience with essential skills like following directions. Getting involved in cooking helps your child to develop fine motor skills, eye hand coordination, and even early concepts of maths and science. There are so many great benefits to cooking with your child.

 

Finally, cooking with your child provides good family time. It is an opportunity to meal plan, look for recipes and share ideas on why and how to make meals healthier for the whole family.
