The Benefits Of Kids In The Kitchen


July 10, 2019

These yummy snacks ideas are designed especially for kids and focus on specific developmental skills.  In addition to getting to eat a tasty treat, the process of making a snack offers specific therapeutic value.

Here are the benefits of kids in the kitchen…

  • Children will practice fine motor skills while assembling their snack.  This improves dexterity and utensil use.
  • Kids will interact with new textures and tastes in a fun way.
  • The step-by-step instructions encourage organizational skills, sequencing and following directions.
  • Kids are typically highly motivated to write the recipes which is a great way to sneak in some extra handwriting practice.
  • Plus, there’s a social benefit too.  These snack and cookie craft ideas are perfect for bringing to a party for a unique treat to share with friends!

P.S. Feel free to swap out the ingredients and get creative!  ? ?
