Cooking with Children Can Be Easy

Cooking with Children Can Be Easy is a great way to teach children while they are having fun. This program comes in a sturdy 3-ring binder. The recipes come with a shopping and supply list so you know exactly what you will need for that recipe. Each recipe also has a lesson to go along with it so that the children are not only making food but are also learning.

We used this curriculum with our homeschool group, which worked out well because the recipes are set up for 20 children. This is a great way to introduce cooking to younger children because it brings cooking instruction to a level they can understand. Each child mixes his or her own ingredients; the instruction cards help with this because they include the words as well as a picture of what the children need to do. I really enjoyed watching the children's faces when they saw what all of their work made.

The only thing I can think of that could make this any better is an additional explanation of why we added each ingredient, and why it would not work without that ingredient. A homeschool version of the curriculum is available, and it would be perfect for the use of one family. I would recommend this to any family or homeschool group that wants to teach with cooking.
