It's just the beginning of the holiday season, which comes with plenty of family, food, and fun. Why not combine all three, and get your little ones in the kitchen helping out with Thanksgiving dinner? While we aren't suggesting that your three-year-old roasts the turkey, kids can get involved in different ways. By having them help prepare a side dish, they feel as though they have made a major contribution to the meal, and they'll tell everyone at your table about how they made it. Imagine the huge smile across both their face and yours.
Make your own salad dressings are really fun to make for kid chefs. What could be more delightful than putting something in a jar and shaking as hard as you can? It can also be a fun science lesson: what is an emulsion? Why don't oil and vinegar like each other? And since you can make them so quickly, even the littlest chefs have the patience for these recipes.
