It seems that kids of all ages love to cook. Cooking up a batch of some fun foods is a great way to spend family time together. Making fun foods to enjoy together always brings happy memories. Try making cookies (slice and bake is fine!), cakes, ice cream or popcorn (on the stove!) Then enjoy the treats during a game or movie.
Also cooking healthy meals together makes it more likely that the kids will want to try all the good healthy foods they have helped prepare. Cooking is always an educational experience including math skills, reading skills and science skills. But best of all, is the bonds formed in the kitchen.
