Kids who cook are smart and healthy, right? Reading the recipe (reading), measuring the ingredients (math), following instructions (doing what they're told). A multitude of skills are learned and put into practice.
Kids are more likely to eat food they've had a hand in preparing so it's a perfect way to get more healthy food in. Broccoli pizza anyone?
Of course the mini chef-in-the-making needs the right equipment and has to look the part. My two aprons for boys are ready to go, as soon as I can get some (semi) decent photos taken.
Apron in Let's Dig (green) and Apron in Robot (blue)for 2 - 6 year olds.
Wouldn't it be great if I could get my a-into-g and print up those recipe cards? on the Gocco? that'd make a nice bonus to send with the aprons.
