I love cooking with children. It's always an adventure. They are learning so much but they don't even realize it. It's also a great way to multitask by spending time with your children while making dinner.
I have compiled all of my recipes into a binder with plastic protector pages. I have one for each of my sons. As they grow, I will add pictures of them cooking. I know they won't know the value of the cookbook until they're adults, but I am confident it will be a great gift some day.
Below is a chart with some of the things children are learning in the process, along with ways to encourage more opportunities for growth.
Even if you're not a great cook, you can have fun with your children in the kitchen. Your child will enjoy the one-on-one time and will treasure the memories forever.
