Tasty Tuesday - Kids In The Kitchen, Part 2
My children are 3, 2, and 6 months. My two toddlers LOVE to help prepare their own meals. I'm running late on posting this and it's way past my bedtime, but I just wanted to give you a few meal ideas that preschool-age children can help with:
ham and cheese croissants - roll up ham and cheese into croissant before baking
English muffin or biscuit pizzas - add sauce, cheese, and toppings
oatmeal - pour pre-measured oatmeal and water into bowl before microwaving, add raisins/bananas/etc.
eggs and toast - stir eggs before cooking, butter toast
muffins/cookies - stir batter, drop onto cookie sheet on into muffin tin, decorating cookies
peanut butter & jelly sandwiches - spread peanut butter and jelly and cut in half
salad - tear lettuce, wash veggies, and add toppings
homemade bread - grease pan, knead dough
Don't underestimate your preschoolers. They are capable of many things if you take the time to teach them. :)
Last week, I received lots of great ideas for ways that kids of all ages can help in the kitchen in various ways! Please keep the ideas coming!
