You can have lots of fun together creating some tasty treats and your child can have some lovely sensory experiences and learn at the same time.
During cookery your child can:
- Develop physical skills for example holding onto the spoon, moving the spoon in the bowl to stir.
- Showing a like or dislike for different textures, smells and if appropriate for your child, taste.
- Asking for or showing a want for more. When you remove a smell, texture or taste look and listen for your child showing that they liked it and would like it again. Reinforce this by saying “you want more”, show the more symbol and carry on.
