Christmas Dinner: Ways for Your Child to Help You Prep

holiday table

With the Christmas holiday quickly approaching, chances are you’re spending plenty of time shopping, wrapping gifts and coming up with recipes for the family meal. Instead of staying in the kitchen by yourself, invite the kids to help out and lend a hand with the cooking. Of course, your children can’t use the stove, oven or other heat source. But they can help with plenty of the Christmas dinner prep.

What can your kids do to help with the holiday meal preparation? Take a look at some easy ways to involve the kids and get Christmas dinner on the table.

Measuring

You need two cups of flour, half a cup of oil and a tablespoon of sugar. Hand over the measure tasks to your young child (with supervision from you or another responsible adult). Not only is this activity a huge help to you, but it also doubles as an easy math lesson for your kiddo.

Mixing

The bread won’t mix itself. Here’s where your child’s always energetic motor abilities come into play. Help your child to build fine motor skills (hand and finger coordination and strength) as they mix and stir bread batter, cookie dough or anything else that’s on the menu.

Cold Prep

You need to prepare a salad and a few other not-so-hot items for the meal. Your child can tear apart lettuce, spoon out dressing or dip and plate chilled foods.
