Kids Cooking

Date:  Jan 26, 2016

Children need to be given duties at home.  Even if you have a domestic helper, you should assign your child something to do or to help with.

Teach them how to make Ice Cream (without using the Ice Cream maker)

Make their hands dirty.

Their job can be as simple as taking a scissors and cut the home made macaroni.

Instead of letting them watch TV or play games by themselves.  

Make them do work.

Hey, see what Kay Kay has prepared for the playdate dinner.

This is the great age to assign them to do things.  Even playdates can help out.

Simple task like decorating the CNY decors.

This is a job for children.  Not a job for domestic helper.

Kids will be happy to decorating the house.

They feel a strong sense of ownership of our home.

The make the home looks lively.

It is the most easy task.  You know after he mastered this skill.  He can cook his lunch next time.  hahahaha

Cook rice, cook egg, put a bit of soya sauce, and that’s it.  

Of course, thru out the time, he will learn more dishes.

Some times ago, he also prepare these.  We prepare and cut the beef for him he just cook with everything in it.  Watch the fire, and that’s it.  

He felt so proud.

(The beef curry is a bit hard, I think control of fire not so accurate.  But still edible.  Next day, mommy cook another 1 hour to make the meet soft)

(Stif fry beef is nice)

(Tofu is simple)

And yes, sometimes there are injury happen.  

Like last week, Jay got oil burnt on his fingers.  

But hey, that’s cooking.  So, what is cooking if you don’t burnt your hand some time.  hahahaha

this will only make the kids more careful next time handling cooking.
