Planning That Weekend Family Cooking Activity

around-world-travel

There are many things that you can do together as a family as a way of bonding, and one of them is cooking. Studies and even testimonials (and perhaps even your own firsthand experience) show that cooking and eating together as a family is, needless to say, a good thing. It doesn’t just teach your kids basic cooking skills, increase their confidence in the kitchen, and help improve being picky with the food they eat, it also is an excellent opportunity for you to reconnect and, as mentioned earlier, strengthen your bond.

With your hectic schedule during the workweek, you may not be able to squeeze in the time for cooking together, so the best time would be on a weekend. Here are tips on how to make that family cooking happen and how you’ll go about it to maximize its benefits:

Make time for it – The very first step to making it happen is to make sure everybody’s available for that day when you’ll get together as a family to cook. It is important that everyone is there for the activity. If you’re cooking for dinner, have the kids do their homework during the day so they’re free to join you.

Choose healthy recipes – Since it’s going to be a dinner bigger than what you usually have during weeknights, choose several recipes to prepare – from the hors d’oeuvres to the dessert. Of course, since one of your goals for the activity is to promote healthy eating among your kids, you choice of recipes should all be healthy. There are various resources online where you can even watch cooking shows that showcase healthy recipes.

Shop for fresh ingredients – Shopping too early during the weekdays would mean you’ll have to store the ingredients for some time before the using them. They may no longer as fresh as you want them to be at the weekend. Since you’ll be cooking for dinner, you can shop during the day so the ingredients you’ll use will still be at their freshest.

Make it exciting – Keep in mind that kids have a very short attention span. The minute they start getting bored, you’ll find it challenging to get their attention and have them focus on what you’re doing. You should be creative in what you do, even include colorful ingredients just to keep them interested. You can also give them incentives or rewards for their participation. That way, they’ll always look forward to participating in this weekend activity.

Certainly, the family that cooks together stays together. If your schedule allows it, make it a point to schedule this activity every weekend so your family will always have a great way to get together and bond.
