More than a play kitchen

If kids are starting to drag (get bored?) with summer, call them back to the kitchen. After all, it’s the safest place for them to get messy.

Plus, they can eat, which is a big attraction. And unless you have a pink smoothie maker, the space is gender neutral.

Invite kids to shop with you at the farmer’s market. Challenge them to design a printed menu based on what you’re cooking for supper. Invite them to prepare a healthy snack for the neighbor next door. Work alongside to prepare an entirely finger-friendly supper. (Summer foods make it easy.)

When food is the launching point, amazing things happen!
