My DS is 4 1/2 and he likes to help occasionally.  Mostly if I am baking something he really wants to eat like banana bread or cookies

IDK. I never let them. I'm not that great a cook and get overwhelmed easily. The last thing I need is them in the kitchen.

Ya, they're always in there getting into stuff, whether or not I'm in there.  They like to make stuff and they like to do whatever I am doing.

Yes sometimes they do,they mainly love to help bake so they can lick the bowl if I bake a cake.

My kids love to help. My 7 yr old likes to bake more then the other kids. My teens like to make Mac n cheese, pizza, and even pancakes.

My mom was and is a fantastic cook. She always let us 'help'. We also 'helped' washing the cars. Lol my cousins stayed with us, and 'helped' and went home, and their mom's (my mom's sisters or sils's) complained that they wanted to 'help' at home and it was a pain. Lol I totally get that. I have real trouble letting my kids 'do things' . Dd, 8, loves helping. She does tend to make a mess. We are dealing with that. :) ds, 9, only wants to make things for himself to eat. Lol we are trying. :)
