Some practical tips

Have a stool or step handy for younger children to stand on so they can watch and participate

Choose something they’ll want to eat when they finish

Lay out all the ingredients before you start so everything is on hand

Create plenty of space – remove all unnecessary clutter from your workspace and unplug appliances that won’t be used

Make sure everyone – including parents – have washed their hands thoroughly. Instilling good cleanliness is important for all future cooking experiments with your kids
