Last week the kids came home from school and made chocolate cake, bread and then chicken schnitzels. We try to make it fun ... I mean who doesn't like to lick the beaters? Of course when making chicken schnitzels I make sure I stress not to lick anything ... raw chicken ... yum. Luckily for me Big Girl got into the act ... she has a much better track record with breaking the eggs into the bowl.
Then it was time for the fun part ... I mean what kid isn't going to jump at the opportunity to whack chicken fillets with a rolling pin? - definitely not a 6 y.o. boy.
I was worried for a minute, I thought he was turning round to whack his sister, but he was just handing over the rolling pin so she could have a go.
10 y.o. girls don't mind a bit of chicken whacking either.
What I like ... it's fun for them, they're not watching TV and while they're doing the cooking I can be pottering around doing some other jobs that might not get done otherwise.
How do you get the kids involved in the kitchen?
