Preparing and Cooking Dinner with Kids


School Holiday Activity

Preparing and cooking dinner with kids is a great way to spend time together. The joy of cooking is awesome.

The three little ones learnt how to safely use appliances and utensils. They did their fair share cleaning up kitchen messes too (with the command of the head chef!).

However, be prepared with the challenge. Getting kids to participate in kitchen is really challenging....challenging one's patience!!
