Chop Chop Family’s website teaches kids to cook. It publishes Chop Chop magazine. And it has just produced the Eatable Alphabet.
This is a box of stiff cards from A to Z, aimed at teaching kids ages 2-6 to cook up a storm.
For fun, I picked the letter M: Mushroom, or seta in Spanish.
Flip the card over, and you get a cooking lesson:
- Count out 4 mushrooms. Slice teh mushrooms and put them in a bowl.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon vinegar, 1 teaspoon oil, and pinch of salt.
- Mix well and enjoy!
The cards also suggest activities. E for Egg (huevo), for example, suggests:
Sit on the floor and hug your knees to your chest. Roll around on teh ground like an egg rolls around on a table.
Have a kid of age 2-6 in your family or pod? These will keep them busy for hours.
I can’t think of a better holiday gift. And for older kids, check out the magazine. It’s good too.
