Cooking with Kids

Children don't have to be restricted to making fairy cakes and teddybear sandwiches in the kitchen. With a little guidance children's creative culinary flair can shine, and they will no doubt love their newfound 'adult' tasks! Not only will you be teaching your kids essential life skills (particularly the cake-baking), but you will also be including them in your own day-to-day life, creating a warm space at home as well as wonderful memories.

Don't forget to remind kids to wash their hands before starting to cook – a good habit forming activity! Also if you're worried about spills then you could cover your floor with some old newspaper, and also put aprons on you and your kid(s). Whether you are cooking or washing up (the boring but essential part of the process, which can be made fun with a few bubbles and a rubber duck or two...), the Kitchen Turret is a perfect way to have your children safely raised to a comfortable height. It will make them feel more independent, whilst teaching them some essential culinary skills...
