Summer Activities for KidsKitchen Activities With Kids

Summer has finally arrived, which means school is no longer in session and the kids are back at home. Looking for a way to spend time with your kids while also being productive? Most people would shy away from having their little ones in the kitchen as they might be distracting, but with these tips you can focus their energy on being helpful.

Although all children can be helpful, it is better to designate certain activities for specific age groups. Here is a list of great kitchen activities that children of all different ages can help with.

Around 2 years:

  • Counting foods
  • Naming colors of foods
  • Naming different foods
  • Wiping tables and counters
  • Rinsing fruits and vegetables
  • Throwing items in the trash

Around 3 years:

  • Help stirring ingredients
  • Loading the dishwasher
  • Help clearing the table
  • Help setting the table
  • Stir lemonade
  • Help with pouring pre-measured items into bowl

Around 4 years:

  • Setting the table
  • Measuring ingredients
  • Peeling fruits such as bananas and oranges
  • Help putting a fruit or veggie tray together

Around 5 years:

  • Setting and clearing the table
  • Helping read the recipe
  • Mixing ingredients
  • Cleaning and scrubbing potatoes and cucumbers
  • Help with frosting cookies

In addition to these kid-friendly activities, here is also a list of general kitchen safety tips to ensure that you and your children remain safe.

1. Be sure to wash your hands before you begin cooking
2. Keep all sharp objects out of reach of children
3. Do not allow your kids to go anywhere near a hot stove
4. Do not leave your children alone in the kitchen while cooking

We hope that this information will allow you to spend quality time with your kids while also teaching them valuable lessons in the kitchen.
