and my sweet baby, born July 12
Giving DD a pot filled with blocks and a large stirring spoon works wonders.
Cutting food toy, DD's totally obsessed!! http://www.melissaanddoug.com/dyn_prod.php?p=487
Use an empty box and contruction paper to make a mini stove to play with. We let DD use our cooking mittens
I need some ideas!
My 22 month old son helped me make muffins the other day and LOVED pouring things into the mixing bowl from the measuring cups and spooning the batter into the muffin tin. Now when we go into the kitchen in the morning, he jumps into his learning tower and says 'help' (meaning he wants to help me).
Unfortunately, I don't often cook things that involve combining ingredients into a mixing bowl! Often, it's straight into the pot/pan. I tried giving him some water to pour into the bowl...that, of course, wasn't the same. I tried giving him some cheaper ingredients to mix up (salt, baking soda...without any finished product in mind) while I was trying to make supper. He was heartbroken when it turned out we weren't going to eat what he made.
I we have scrambled eggs, I let him stir them a bit. I was thinking he might be able to use a dull knife on cheese or something, but other than that, I don't have many other ideas. Short of baking every day, I can't come up with many things for him to do. Any other ideas?
