Kitchen Fun


If you've got a little sous chef on your hands, there is no better place than the kitchen to turn cooking and baking into a math lesson.

Give your younger child tasks like sorting your ingredients or counting how many eggs you need for a certain recipe. Your older kids can work on number recognition and fractions by helping to measure ingredients, turning the oven to the correct temperature (with adult supervision), and dividing up the servings.

After you've finished your cooking, you'll have a tasty little reward to enjoy together.
