As you may know, I am the designated cooking teacher, which has proven quite interesting so far, and difficult when it comes to actually finding ingredients I need. (On that note, can anyone tell me where I can get icing/powdered sugar nearby??)
To me, I think a part of cooking is the cleaning afterward. Due to time constraints, particularly on Wednesdays, I try to clean while the class finishes up eating. For the first time ever, 3 of my boys actually wanted to help me clean! We had a peanut buttery sticky mess and I smiled at the offer. Sure, go ahead and clean, it’s part of the process, much like putting toys away after using them.
As it turns out, they aren’t supposed to help me clean at the sink. Oops, will have to say no next time… But I still think it can build some character. At least they all loved their “ants on a log” that we made!
