Thanksgiving is the perfect time to get the kids involved. Not only is it great bonding time, but they feel proud of what they’ve accomplished. So get out the mini-aprons and gather the gang in the kitchen, and try one of these Cozy approved meals.
To make this kid friendly, make sure everything is chopped up and ready to be put into the bowl. Let the kids mix everything together and then have them spoon the stuffing into large muffin pans instead of one large pan.
Have your kids’ measure out all the ingredients. Once you’ve allowed everything to cook, have them handle the hand mixer, but beware, they may get some on the walls.
Tip: Set a timer for mixing, only 2 minutes, any longer and the texture becomes gluey.
Depending on the age of your kiddo, you can most likely give them full control of this “assignment.” Just show them the picture so they know how to assemble it.
The kids have the chance to mix the filling while you core the apples. Then you can even let them stuff the apples.
These are just some of the recipes you can have your little helpers get involved with. They can tear lettuce, wash the fruits and veggies, roll out pie crusts, place the rolls in the basket, and so much more. Enjoy!
