Happy Sunday friends!
I’m going to take Sundays to keep it brief during this 31 day series and simply share a “tip of the day”. I know your time is precious just like mine!
But a word before I do…
Recently I’ve been thinking that I want to be certain to be clear about one thing as I write to every single day this month to encourage you to invite your kids into the kitchen to spend time together and cook together. Just because I am writing about this and am passionate about cooking with kids does not mean we do it everyday.
Not every meal is suitable for my kids to help with, and there are plenty of times when they are perfectly content to keep on playing (and I’m perfectly content to let them!).
Regularity, more than frequency, is important. Maybe you plan to let your kids help with breakfast on Saturdays, a special snack during the week, and a dinner every few weeks.
By keeping a consistent practice of cooking together, they will be more likely to learn and develop their skills. You will also find that as the practice becomes more regular, they will be much more familiar with the rules and expectations you have for working in the kitchen together…making the whole experience more fun for everyone.
Now, on to the tip!
