Kids in the Kitchen Kids Kitchen Helpers for Kids
Girls and Boys need to learn how to cook!
It is part of human survival. Rainy days are always great for letting young children experiment in the kitchen.
( You do need to be able to control your patience, however)
Try to let him or her do it by themselves, before you offer to help. Of course, they will need your help with sharp knives,etc.
SAFETY RULES FOR THE KITCHEN
1. Always ask permission from an adult before you cook. If you are very young, you will need an adult to be with you. 2. Don't ever light a gas oven by yourself.
3. Use a pot holder to hold on to pot handles on the stove.
The handles get very hot and you could get a bad burn.
4. Always keep the pot handles turned away from the edge
of the stove. If they are facing the edge, they could get knocked over and you could be burnt badly.
5. Always wash your hands before you begin a recipe. This will help prevent germs from getting into the food and making you sick.
6. Never, ever, pour hot grease by yourself. This is when you ask for an adults help. Spilled grease can cause a fire, and it can cause bad burns.
