Involving your kids in the kitchen is as easy as putting out the welcome mat. The next time you make a family meal, ask your children to help you. Don’t fret over mistakes – enjoy yourself as you connect with your children and build memories that will last forever. Check out our easy recipes & ideas to learn about cooking activities you can try together.
When kids first start cooking, it is important to help build their confidence in the kitchen. Let your children try cooking activities that interest them, and encourage them to try different kinds of tasks. Making tacos? Let your children make the guacamole. Having a barbecue? Let them make the potato salad. Keep your children interested in cooking by continuing to challenge them and giving them more responsibilities as they gain confidence and skills.
Kids need to know that you trust them in the kitchen. As you see your children growing comfortable with cooking tasks, give them more complex jobs to help them learn new skills and stay motivated to continue cooking.
