Skills Kids Learn When Cooking
The Young Chef Learns About Rules
Following Rules: Many children will tell their parents, “Gee, you never let me do anything I want to do.” Okay, maybe the things they want to do are unreasonable, or unsafe. The kitchen can be a dangerous place. It is also the location where most home fires begin. This is a great time for the child to learn about rules, why they exist, and good reasons for them to obey them. One rule is that if they do not follow instructions, such as those in a recipe, their dish will be ruined. Cooking with children will enable parents to teach them them about rules, by teaching them kitchen safety.
Examples of Kitchen Rules:
There are many projects for your young chefs to do in a fun and safe manner, with your supervision. For those who truly enjoy cooking and baking, you may want to purchase their own cooking utensils, cookbooks, aprons that will help them feel like chefs, have fun, and to be safe at the same time.
Cooking with children is not only fun, but it is also rewarding.
