Kids who Cook

Cooking is one of the best hands-on educational activities we can do with our children. The best part about it?  You put a kid in the kitchen and you just naturally start explaining things.  Setting up procedures.  Teaching them about recipes, how to measure, follow directions, and kitchen safety.  Josiah now knows that when we cook together he gets out his apron, his step stool, and puts his hands behind his back until he’s given directions.

When cooking I like to use the method of:

I do

We do

You do

Teacher or not-cooking in and of itself with kids leads to teaching!  You truly have no choice.

So get your kiddo in the KITCHEN because life is a classroom!
