Children love to help in the kitchen, especially during the holidays. Rather than sending your child outside or off to watch television, let them help prepare the holiday meal! Here are some easy ways to involve your child with Thanksgiving preparations:
Biscuits or Rolls: If your family likes to prepare bread from scratch, your child can help by rolling out the dough. They will love to get their hands in the flour! If you prefer to use frozen dough, your child can place them on the pan for you to put in the oven.
Deviled Eggs: While all families may have a different spin on their deviled egg recipe, everyone uses boiled eggs. Your child can peel the eggs. After removing the yolk, your child can mash it in a bowl for the mixture.
Mashed potatoes: Mashing the potatoes is an easy task. Your child can also help with the blender if you use one.
Desserts: Your child can help mix the batters for the pie or ice the cake. These are both easy tasks and your child will love licking the spoon afterwards!
Set the table: Your child can be a big help by setting the table. This is also a good time to teach them about the proper way to set a table.
Thanksgiving is all about spending time with loved ones. Let your little loved ones be a part of the holiday preparation and help you get ready for the Thanksgiving meal.
