Toddlers in the Kitchen

It is so much fun to have toddlers in the kitchen!  Seriously – I’m not joking!  I discovered this last month when I decided to make toasted coconut cupcakes from scratch for Bear’s birthday.  Baby E wanted to help, so I pulled a chair into the kitchen and let her go to town.  When Bear got home he said it looked like a flour bomb went off!  We had so much fun baking together, that every day after that she wanted to drag a chair into the kitchen and ‘help Mommy.’

Baby E standing on a chair made me very nervous!  I was afraid to turn my back for a moment to grab something out of the fridge.  She is not yet 2, so parking her on a step stool didn’t seem like a good solution either.  So I started searching online for toddler kitchen stools and found the Little Partners Learning Tower.  We love it!  It is very sturdy, and she can climb in and out of it on her own. I placed it down at the end of our kitchen island, far away from the stove or anything that could hurt her.  It is adjustable in height, and considering how high our counter tops are she will be able to use it for years to come.  I give it five stars!

I was also searching online for tips on getting toddlers started in the kitchen and came across a great blog by Kylie D’Alton called How We Montessori.  I was so surprised to see what her young children were capable of doing in the kitchen.  She co-authored a great kids cookbook called Kids in the Kitchen that is full of great tips from setting up a child friendly kitchen to simple, healthy recipes.

There are so many benefits to getting Baby E involved in our kitchen activities.  I cook more now that I have an eager, little helper and can spend more time in the kitchen.  And she wants to try every ingredient we use in our recipes.  She was chowing down on raw, cherry tomatoes the other day!  Her father wouldn’t eat raw tomatoes until he turned 40….

Check out our ‘Toddlers in the Kitchen‘ Pinterest board for more great resources and ideas.  Here is a photo of Baby E having a big time on her new perch!
