Bread - kids in the kitchen

Does your kitchen oven look deserted? No need to. What you do need is some flour, yeast, a pinch of salt and water. And a helping hand from your busy play dough-loving toddler who will certainly be happy to jump in and this time make some real food - bread.

Kids love doing real stuff. Our toddler grabs his red apron whenever he notices that something is going on in the kitchen. (Tina, thanks again, you'll notice he uses it a lot!) And then - it all looks like messing with play dough. Drilling into the dough, turning and kneading it, pulling and tearing pieces apart, combining them again, then drilling a hole with his index finger and carefully examining what's inside...

I offered him several types of seeds to knead them into the dough - you can use sesame, pumpkin, sunflower seeds, whatever you happen to have (avoid it if your kid is allergic to that). To make long story short, this can be a fun kitchen adventure.

Oh, and what a joy when your little angel gets to hold and eat something he or she made himself!
Give it a try, it is a wonderful activity on a rainy day.
