The kitchen can be a fascinating place for young children. They see grown-ups working briskly in there, watch the steam rise from pots on the stove, and smell what's on the menu that night. Even older kids might be intrigued by how baked goods and meals come together. It isn't always convenient to invite them into the kitchen to help, but consider doing so when time allows.

Younger kids can watch what you're doing and help out with small tasks, like stirring something or setting the table. Older kids can be taught how to crack eggs or measure ingredients. Even teens might be lured into the kitchen if you tell them they can choose the dish and you'll help prepare it with them.

To the kids, it will seem like fun, but there are other benefits to this time together:

    * Preschoolers see how the dishes they eat are put together and they get hands-on experience, which is a great way to learn and feel like they are helping out.

I definitely agree to you statement planettech8. I also teach my children how to cook, even if it is simple. Definitely, my style of teaching is step by step and simple to difficult.
