Kitchen Kids: The Toddler Made Lunch!

Follow Me on Pinterest

Jack loves to cook! His toy kitchen is in the corner of the big kitchen and when I’m cooking he orbits between a stool by the counter where he can watch and help and making “coffee” and other treats for me out of pom-poms and imagination. I love it.

The other day at he was fighting with Mouse over a toy she had and he wanted; so I invited him into the kitchen to help me make lunch.

I had hard boiled some eggs and was planning to make egg salad- but then I had a thought “egg salad is ridiculously easy to make- easy enough for a toddler to do with some help at strategic points.”

So up on a stool Jack went with a biscuit cutter in hand!

Great for hand-eye coordination and motor skills

Mash the peeled eggs with a pastry cutter!

One of those places where I am reminded how VERY observant children are!

Try to put a spoonful on a tortilla. Remember just in time not to touch what you’re cooking! Ask for a scraper.
