At our household, every Sunday is devoted to cooking snacks and treats for the family to eat throughout the week. There is nothing like enjoying homemade cookies, muffins, brownies, and cupcakes! Not only does it leave a sweet aroma in the house, it’s also a perfect time to get together with the kids and bake as a family. Toddlers love to mimic their parents, so give them a plastic bowl and spoon to mix pretend batters or salads. Once you feel they are ready to prepare real food involve them in simple cooking projects like whisking, rolling balls, stirring, and helping pour out a measuring cup. Even when my children were babies, I would put them in their high chair beside me when I was cooking and showing or describing to them what I was preparing for their meals or snacks.
The best part about cooking with my kids at an early age is that as teenagers they continue to help out in the kitchen by cooking meals or preparing snacks. For my daughter’s 20th birthday party, we made Rocky Road Peanut Butter Snack Bites for our guests to eat as snacks during the afternoon. When I showed her the recipe, she couldn’t wait to make them with me. Of course she loves all recipes made with chocolate and peanut butter, therefore I really did not have to convince her much to help prepare them. Even her birthday cake was prepared with peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. We had a great time talking about her favourite TV shows while listening to the radio, and she even asked me what I wanted as a gift for Mother’s Day! The special bonding moments you make in the kitchen with your children are so precious!
