What’s the most indispensable tool in our kitchen? The Guidecraft Kitchen Helper.
We love to involve the kids in our cooking and let them perform experiments in the sink.
Yesterday, my kids stuck cloves in oranges to make mulled cider. The other day, we made Stone Soup using the recipe in the children’s picture book. Every weekend when Daddy makes pancakes, the kids drop chocolate chips into theirs. And they love to decorate the cookies that Papa bakes.
We used to just have the kids stand on a kitchen chair, probably not the safest option. The Kitchen Helper is very sturdy and has rails to keep enthusiastic toddlers from tumbling out.
We’ve seen other, similar products but we appreciate that this one folds, includes a little chalkboard, and sells for $40-50 less than its competitors.
Guiding children towards independence and responsibility within a safe setting is one of the goals of most parents. And we really like that the kids can learn simple cooking skills and help wash their plastic dishes (properly supervised, of course) with the Kitchen Helper.
And the Kitchen Helper raises kids up to your level during their kitchen science or kids in the kitchen adventures, a nice advantage for parents who have trouble bending.
Kids naturally like to be where the action is and with the Kitchen Helper, they will have plenty of opportunities to learn.
