My Kitchen Helper

Raising helpers is something that comes naturally in my family. We like to cook so the kids end up congregating around the kitchen floor at an early age and as soon as they can follow basic instructions we try to turn the adults from a cooking show to a real world classroom.

Three is the perfect age for mixing without spilling, getting and returning things from the pantry and helping to combine ingredients.

This is Layla in the kitchen making a salad for a recent BBQ with George and Devon.

Thanks to salads like these she'll know the name of a variety of vegetables and she may one day even become willing to eat a few more of them.

What are your favorite real life classroom lessons?
