When I let my kids cook with me, messes are bound to happen.
Sometimes more eating and playing gets done than helping.
But sometimes Big Sis is actually a really big help. Knives make me super nervous, but when she asked if she could help in the kitchen and all I had for her to do was chop things….
I said YES!
I got out a butter knife and gave her a pile of mushrooms and asparagus and let her have at it (after a lot of practice we can move up to a sharper knife, but we’ll stick to a butter knife for now!) She did great. Some pieces were a LOT larger than other pieces but that’s ok. Not only did she enjoy doing such a big girl job, it really did help me and save me some time….and she also was more interested in trying her food at dinner time. Win-win-win!
