He loves to be a part of the preparation of food. He sees me stir something on the stove and he immediately assumes this is something that he can do.
I try to let him see what I am doing and let him help when it is safe, but for the most part he is just not old enough.
To help him feel like he is a part of the process I pour a few beans in a pot and he can pretend to cook too.
He now expects this once I start cooking.
He loves filling the funnel with beans and sorting the beans into all of his little pots and pans.
I try to keep an eye on him though, I don't want him to get any ideas like sticking the beans up his nose. Last thing I need is him growing a garden in his nose.
