Special Soup

ages 2-6


Mixing bowl, spoon, whatever you're cooking for dinner

Activity Detail

If you're trying to cook and your little one keeps demanding your attention, give them their own large mixing bowl and spoon. Hand them the odds and ends of whatever you're using: i.e. potato or onion peels, celery leaves, pasta, etc. Add water and any spices you feel you can spare. Stir, stir, stir... let your child keep adding whatever strikes their fancy. Et voila! Special Soup! You can't eat it, but your child will have fun working along next to you.

If your child is an enthusiastic cook and you have a salad spinner, throw a few things in that and let your child spin to his heart's content.

Though I have a feeling my son this activity would've been more trouble than it's worth when my son was 2, he is now nearly 5 and loves to "help" me cook. This is a great activity to make him feel included and helps me keep an eye on him in the kitchen.

Wasting food isn't that great of an idea- maybe do this activity with plastic food for the child?

This stew, if not intended for humans, could always be added to the dog food. My mother would rinse out tomato paste cans with some warm water and add it to the dry dog food occasionally. We would also make rice, carrot and canned dog food cakes for the dogs on their annual "birthdays." (They were found dogs, so their actual b-days were never known.)
