Grace likes to cook. You wouldn’t have guessed, right?
Thanks to her new Learning Tower, it is quicker and easier than ever for Grace to help cook. We received the Learning Tower two weeks ago yesterday, and she has used it every single day since. She loves it.
I love that she can help so easily.
Well, I love it as long as she isn’t deciding to grab handfuls of whatever we’re cooking and toss it around the kitchen. That irritates the heck out of me, actually.
Is there a reason that it shouldn’t irritate me? Is she learning something? I think she’s just being ornery.
I’m going back to Positive Parenting Solutions for an answer on that one.
The right tools make all of the difference.
Back in my days as a Pampered Chef kitchen consultant, I got a mini whisk. I’ve always liked it because I can use it in a small bowl, like when I’m scrambling eggs.
Turns out that mini whisk is just the right size for Gracie.
We made Pumpkin Pie Pancakes, and I was using my big, sturdy whisk to mix the pumpkin into our pancake better. Grace helped by using the little sturdy whisk.
Frankly, she made a huge mess, but it was accidental, so I was okay with it.
She was so proud of herself!
My helping, Mommy!
And that excitement means she’ll be back again tomorrow.
