The best cooking for kids ages four and up involves activities that focus on independence. Young children can perform most tasks in the kitchen at this age, but the skills needed for more OK work are still developing. Even if children are old enough to supervise themselves, they should be closely monitored, as they are prone to distractions. Parents can give suggestions on activities and supervise while their child plays.
Cooking with your child is fun! Your preschooler is able to read recipes and work independently.
