Have you had the opportunity to include your kids in your cooking routine? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it.

Our boys love it every time we do it. Sometimes even our 2 year old gets to participate in very basic tasks. Yes, it will get messy and yes it will take longer but it’s such a great family activity to enjoy together. I have also found that children are more likely to eat something they normally wouldn’t if they had helped make it. If it’s your first time, start with an easy recipe. We have done this since they were 2 years old so a few weeks ago we made pasta!

We decided to make Owl cupcakes to kick off our Fall! My husband thought it was interesting that we were making Owl cupcakes for Fall. Men, they just don’t get it, he, he, he.

Before you start the recipe think about the things you want your child to help you with and the steps that you don’t feel like they are ready for. That way when they ask you can say, “why don’t we have you mix instead.”
