🍴FRITTATA🍴

This recipe involves a lot of simple, kid-friendly tasks like pouring and mixing. Kids can:

This is a fun and simple task for toddlers.

CRACK eggs into a bowl*

Kids can use a large egg shell piece to help grab any little shells that broke off into the egg bowl.

WHISK together the egg mixture

SET TIMER for frittata

This is a good chance for kids to learn about cooking times.

We’re a fan of this Wire Whisk.

🍴YOGURT🍴

Consider setting up a yogurt-making station, much like a sundae bar (which they’ll love). Children can:

SCOOP yogurt into bowls

Kids can even use an ice cream scooper.

DECORATE the yogurt

Kids can sprinkle fruit and squirt honey onto the yogurt.

*Note: For toddlers especially, these tasks require adult supervision and/or assistance, as items may be sharp, hot or otherwise dangerous.
