Believe it or not, cooking can be great fun for both you and your toddler! Creating something delicious to eat helps them explore a variety of skills that are essential to their development. Cooking can encourage physical skills such as grasping a cup of an ingredient to dump, stirring with a spoon, as well as expanding language skills while you talk about what you are doing. Additionally, cooking together offers opportunities to increase your child’s ability to follow directions, learn about size and build sensory experiences with new tastes and smells.
Our teli staff has some stress-free tips to make your time in the kitchen educational and enjoyable for both you and your child!
Taking the time to explore cooking with your child can become a very special learning activity with a great tasting outcome to enjoy together! For more information about teli Early Intervention Services, call 412-922-8322.
