Cooking with mom

Do you let the kids cook with you?

I wont lie, I don't always enjoy cooking with DD. We do it anyway because it allows her to work on her reading, math, ability to follow directions, chemistry, etc. Plus, it teaches basic home econ.

We try to find lessons in everything we do.

I have 6 kids.  I do let them cook with me ( they take turns), I actually do not enjoy it either, but they have got to learn how, so that is why I do it. plus they love it :)

Not so much cooking but baking. Anytime I make cupcakes or cookies dd is right by my side helping out. Shes 6 and there are some recipes she can pretty much do on her own.

My girls just cook whenever they feel like it, always someone coming down stairs and cooking something, they do help by cooking dinner for everyone once in a while...lol
