Cooking with Kids Can Be Fun and Educational!

I have always enjoyed cooking and baking, especially baking around the holidays. Since my daughter was about two years old she has helped me bake cookies, cakes and other family treats. When she was about 3 years old we had some of the kids on our block  join in on the baking fun. When children are involved in the kitchen, it isn’t only fun, but educational. They learn to measure ingredients, mix them up and see firsthand the magic of baking and cooking. They learn to read recipes, and apply the concepts of math and science in real, practical, hands on experience. You and your child can share priceless moments together that are both fun and educational. Oh yeah, and you get to eat the cookies too!
