This summer, keep your kids busy in an educational and fun way: introduce them to the kitchen!
My mother always said that hungry children are cranky children. Bored, hungry, cranky…these are the less exciting aspects of having children on vacation for three months. But we have a solution: introduce the kids to the joys of cooking with Kids Cooking Made Easy!
There’s a great educational aspect to cooking and following a recipe. As explained by the authors, Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek. “Kids Cooking Made Easy is a picky eater solution,” says Victoria Dwek. “Kids either become more open-minded when they see how something is prepared, or they learn to prepare their own favorites.” Aside from kitchen skills, learning to cook has hidden educational benefits. As Leah Schapira points out, “Children learn about math and fractions when following a recipe.” They also learn to read and follow instructions – all while having a good time!
Chock full of exciting summer recipes such as Teriyaki Beef Sticks, Peach and Mango Salad and Creamsicle Sorbet and fun crafts and edible activities such as Edible Sand Art and Homemade Button Candy, this book will be a delight for your children and a lifesaver (or at least sanity saver!) for you.
