When children participate in the kitchen, they are learning important life skills.
With specific direction, they can create several tasty dishes, and enjoy the sense of autonomy that is fostered as a result.
These kinds of activities provide endless opportunities for building self-esteem and increasing vocabulary!
For this particular activity, we made pigs (with the assistance of a picture diagram) as we learned about the Three Little Pigs!
Our ingredients included strawberries, strawberry cream cheese, bananas, blueberries, and English muffins. Everyone enjoyed following the directions on the pictures, as they watched their pigs come to life!
