We often hear people criticize their two year olds as being incredibly unhelpful in the kitchen. Sometimes it takes a little training, but these little ones are able to help much more than you’d think. Check out this great video of 2-year-old Zechariah helping out with breakfast.
We think 2-year-olds are “terrific.” We also think they can do much greater things if we just let them. Instead of taking the overly important things (like cracking eggs) from them, try incorporating them into the work of the family. You may have to put up with a few shells in the egg bowl, but is that really a big deal?
How do you incorporate your 2-year-olds?
