It may surprise you how quickly kids ages 3-5 pick up cooking skills. Teaching kids how to scramble eggs is a great place to start!
We LOVE cooking with kids, and we encourage you to bring your kids into the kitchen! Yes, they will make a mess, but you are helping teach them a life skill that so many adults lack today. Kids CAN cook! All it takes is some time, patience, and (lots of) paper towels!
In addition to teaching cooking skills, the kitchen is a great place to teach the five senses, science, math, nutrition, and more. Plus, when you cook with kids, they are more likely to taste what they make!
Our company has conducted countless kids cooking classes, in addition to cooking with our own kids, so we have learned some tricks along the way. Cooking with kids of different ages can be a bit of a challenge, which is why we’ve created this video series: cooking with kids ages 3-5! We will teach you and your kids some simple and practical tips for encouraging kitchen confidence from a young age.
Cooking with 3- to 5-year-olds can seem daunting at first – they barely have enough motor skills to control kitchen tools, but once you start teaching them, you may be surprised with how quickly they pick it up!
