My kids LOVE to help me in the kitchen. I must admit that up until about a month ago about the only thing I would let them do was get the ingredients out of the fridge and set the table. Then two of my kids took a children’s cooking class and it changed the way I looked at having them in the kitchen. They truly love to cook, I like the help, it is a great learning experience and much needed tool as an adult. I just needed to provide them with the opportunity to cook and the knowledge of how to be safe and efficient in the kitchen. Now my kids know to wash their hands often, only stir/add ingredients when asked by me, what tools they are aloud/able to use in the kitchen, and how to be of help to me.

I LOVE HAVING THEM IN THE KITCHEN COOKING NOW! This recipe is perfect for all ages of kids to help in the kitchen. We started small with this recipe and now my kids can make a basic dinner almost completely on their own with my supervision!

Do you let you kids cook with you? If so, what things do they cook or help you cook? I’d love some more ideas!
