Gourmet Lessons: Cooking Up Teachable Moments

Looking for fun activities to do in the kitchen to practice skills with your child?

Magnetic Letters -Readily available letters on the fridge or on a cookie baking sheet allow for hours of fun while you are busy preparing dinner. Have your child make their name, sort letters into categories, or to make beginning popcorn words.

Or, try these ideas from www. scholastic.com/parents

Search 'n' Sort -Gather ten cans from the pantry and ask your child to arrange them alphabetically or by expiration date or color. Then she can come up with a pattern of her own that you can try to identify.

Veggie Jigsaw Puzzle -Cut up a carrot and invite your child to reassemble it. Challenge on older child to re-build three cut up carrots or a potato cut into irregular shapes.

Fungi Fun -Leave a piece of bread inside a clean container for a few days and record the changes with a camera.

Supermarket Sweep -Create a list of foods and products in your kitchen, and see how quickly your child can find them all. Challenge her classification skills by asking for three diary products, two utensils used for mashing, something used for stirring, etc.

Recipe Quiz -Pull a cookbook off the shelf, and if your child is an early reader, send her in search of simple words on the ingredient list- like eggs, cups, and milk. If your child is reading at a higher level, challenge her to find more complex information for you such as the temperature setting on the oven or how many servings the dish makes.
