Plan a Fun Stay-at-Home Evening that Your Kids Will Love

Cook Dinner Together

Regardless of your age, learning to cook and understanding basic kitchen skills is extremely beneficial. In the kitchen, kids will practice math, problem solving, and comprehension, all while learning a skill they can use for the rest of their lives.

To get this night-in started, let your kids find a fun or new recipe they want to try for dinner. You might want to do this a few days in advance to get any ingredients you may need. While cooking, give them simple but entertaining tasks, like pouring or stirring. As you’re working, show them each step to keep them engaged.

Kids build confidence when they work in the kitchen. It shows them that putting in the work and effort can lead to something good. You’re teaching them skills that they can use outside of the kitchen, as well as how to take care of themselves when they get older.
