Today Is National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day
As you read in the headline, today, September 13th is National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day. And I am trying to be as positive about this as possible because I remember growing up that with our big family we would often take turns making dinner for the entire family. Many times when it was up to us kids it would end up being pancakes and eggs because that was simple or maybe something like spaghetti.
Although at the same time, I know that whenever I was helping make food as a kid I normally left the kitchen more of a mess than when I got started. Beyond making a mess, it really is important for kids to learn the important life skills like cooking.
I hope you're open minded to whatever lands on the dinner table tonight if you participate in National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day, but no matter what it's fun to watch kids get creative in the kitchen.
