Using Educational Toys to Free Up Time for Me!Sarah James
It’s inevitable I’ve picked up the kids from school, dispensed snacks, chased them around the house, and, as always, the time comes to make dinner. Now, at this point, my son will usually disappear, but my 3-year-old daughter wants to be part of the entire dinner preparation process. While washing ingredients and sorting vegetables are great jobs for her, when it comes time to actually cook on the stove, I really need her out of the way. Having her engaged with something besides my 400-degree stove is quite helpful, to say the least.
Thankfully, she’s become quite enamored with the VTech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset, which has been a godsend. Take a look at how we navigate working “together” during the evening hours. Since it’s easily movable, I can put it in our great room living area so she can model after what I’m doing in the kitchen. It’s a win-win, if you ask me!
How do you navigate the dinner hour with your kids?
