Play through cooking

Creative concoctions in the kitchen teach kids that play reaps rewards. How do you get kids interested in cooking? Start outside. Start in a garden or at an outdoor farmers market. The taste of a ripe strawberry, fresh from the garden, or lettuce picked at a local farm begins a conversation about seasonal offerings and how to use those items to produce creative meals.

Encourage kids to experiment. Allow for wonder and ah ha moments that only unique combinations can bring. What if a watermelon cube is combined with a chili pepper? Get playful in the kitchen and the efforts will fulfill all areas of STEAM, while kids measure, mix, create and build while playing and having fun!
