Ways to Make Cooking With Kids More Fun

Worried they’ll hurt themselves or make a mess?  Don’t!

Start small.  Let your kids mash potatoes or use the garlic press to peel a clove.

Manage the inevitable mess.  Contain your used tools in a measuring cup or jar that’s easily transferable to the sink. 

Avoid kitchen boo-boos.  Use knives with a blunt tip and nonslip grip.  Use drink stirrers instead of sharp skewers. 

Create traditions.  Explore different cultures.  Tell stories about the foods you loved or made when you were a kid.  Ask your kids to write down a family recipe, name it something fun, and keep it in the kitchen or a special cook book.
