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 bread with the assistance of a picture diagram as we learned about the world of baking.
Since we are learning about the book, In the Night Kitchen, we thought it would be fun to bake our own bread! To do this, we divided into groups of two.
Each child would have a turn holding the bag that the bread would go into, while the other child added ingredients. Once finished, we put it into the toaster oven and then, into our tummies!
