Are you looking for a fun activity you can do with the kids these school holidays that don’t involve screens?

We’ve got you covered!

Teaching your kids how to cook is a great life skill and the perfect activity to do if you are in the house (aka in lockdown or on rainy days). The research indicates that kids who are involved in cooking may be more engaged with their food and more likely to try new things.

When cooking with your kids, try and give them as much control as possible. For example, let them help to choose the recipe and encourage them to get involved in age appropriate tasks such as cracking an egg into a bowl, grating, mixing, pouring, flipping etc. 

By cooking with your kids, you can bundle up some learning while also getting dinner, lunch or a snack prepared. Use the experience to teach your kids about numbers, reading, language, history and so much more!

Here are 3 simple recipes that you can make at home with your children:
