Kids in the Kitchen

Simple solutions to letting your kids help-out while staying mess free.

Today: Cinnamon Toast
My kids love to help make cinnamon toast, but it always ends up messy or loaded with way too much sugar. Although this isn't the healthiest snack, we managed to make it fun. We filled up a babyfood jar with the cinnamon and sugar (You can also use mason jars or spaghetti jars). Once filled, the kids mixed the ingredients by shaking the jars twenty times (Counting pracitce!). Then, MOM used a knife to poke holes in the lids turning them into shakers! One for each child, of course. Now it's no argument over who gets to help and they have control over how much sugar get sprinkled on their toast. It's the little things!
