How to Have Successful Kiddy Adventures in the Kitchen!!
We all want the same things for our children. We want them to grow up and always be happy all the time and we want them to always follow their dreams. But one thing I know that can be hard with children is to get them to help you in the kitchen and be happy at the same time. I have learnt a few skills from babysitting and I am also currently studying my certificate 3 in Early Childhood. I am going to help you with this little issue by giving you a few tips and tricks to make your child want to help you in the kitchen. A great way to start this off is to buy my product “Doughy Delights’ that make it quick, easy and fun for you and your child to make some delicious cookies.
Tip 1: Make sure they wash their hands!!
This is a definite thing to get done before you start. You don’t know where your kid’s hands have been and if they have been in childcare or school all day, a lot of germs and nasty bugs going around. So my first tip is to make sure you and your child both wash your hands.
Tip 2: Try to have a clean kitchen before your start.
I think this is a very helpful tip if you have the time! If your kitchen is already messy before you do the cooking, it just creates more mess and stress! (expect it to be a messy process).
Tip 3: Make sure you teach as you are cooking.
Make sure you try and incorporate teaching into the cooking as it will make it really fun and your kids will also learn at the same time. One good thing you can teach them as you are cooking is about food hygiene – remind them why your hands were washed. Another good tip to teach them is to talk a little bit about the ingredients as you are adding them into the bowl. Cooking is also good for fine motor skills and coordination.
Tip 4: And lastly MAKE IT FUN!!
Children will learn to love cooking if you relax and have fun with them in the kitchen. Even if you are feeling really nervous to cook in the kitchen you can start of with an easy recipe like cookies.
My Product: Doughy Delights
All the money that I will make through selling my product will go to BASP (Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project). The product is called Doughy Delights which is cookie mix recipe in a jar. The main reason I chose this product is because I am currently doing my Certificate III in early childhood and this product will help get children in the kitchen and keep them happy at the same time. The great thing about my product is that when you buy it, most of the ingredients are in the jar already – you just need to add them into the bowl and add wet ingredients. It is quick, easy and great because you can still spend some quality time with your children.
