It´s almost christmas,and I want to prepare great recipes and funny things to do with my students!
I read that " the practical use of having another pair of hands around the kitchen, Christmas cooking with kids can teach them a lot of useful life skills:
- Empathy - By making food that other people will enjoy, your child has to put themselves into someone else’s shoes for a while, which will help them in their relationships with their friends.
- Math - Christmas cooking usually involves a lot of baking, which requires a lot of careful measuring and weighing. This attention to detail, ratios and numbers will help your child’s mathematical development.
- Maturity - For years, your child will expect food to magically appear on the table when they are hungry, so by cooking with them, you are showing them the time and effort that people put into their dinner. You can also use it as a springboard to get them to cook a meal for the family.
Make sure that you keep the focus on fun, as these kinds of skills will be picked up subconsciously by your child’s brain. Turning it into a lesson may turn them off cooking "
