I’ve mentioned allowing children to help in the kitchen before, and I want you to know that I practice what I preach. Earlier this week, Grace and I made chicken salad for lunch. Chicken salad is the perfect meal for her to help with. There are no sharp tools. The measurements are totally unimportant. You can taste as you go along. It’s basically a matter of tossing things into a big bowl, mixing it up, and serving. Here’s what we did:This is a perfect recipe to make with a toddler. It’s quick, and she didn’t get bored. No cooking was required, so we made it and ate it. She saw immediate results. What are you and your kids making these days?
