Some days I can't get into the kitchen myself, let alone have the children help. These days I try to work out meals that involve very little to no cooking. But when I cook I love to have my helpers with me.
When I first started cooking with Audrey she was so excited to help and I would try to do too much. Now that I know she will be content with any project I give her I only let her help where she will be successful. Here is a list of some of the girls favorite kitchen tasks:
- Add the seasonings
- Get out bowls, plates, or utensils
- Measure ingredients (with help)
- Turn on mixer, food processor, bread machine
- Push button on microwave
- Set table
- Wash vegetables
- Unload dishwasher
- Scrub counters
There are plenty more they can do but these are the basics that we do on a regular basis. It is so nice when they volunteer to help with one of the tasks listed above. That not only makes me happy but them as well.
