i'm not that brave with letting them help in the kitchen (yet) - although i will give all 3 plastic knives and let them cut up fruit for a salad or softer foods that i can use in dinner prep. also, the older 2 have assignements to set and clear the table (not the heavy stuff, but the stuff they can handle). i've found that it gives them a sense of owership and can really help me keep the arguing down when i'm trying to cook!

Justine isn't old enough yet (but she does have a tupperware drawer in the kitchen). BUT, as I was shucking dixie peas and corn tonight, I decided I can't wait for her to take over that job!

Froggy has been cooking with me since she was able to walk well. We got a Learning Tower which made it easy for her to see and reach. She dumps in ingredients, cracks eggs, stirs and has even just now started cutting some things.
