kids in the kitchen, memeThis #KidsintheKitchen series started to showcase the ways we can educate our kids while having fun in the kitchen. This week I had the opportunity to switch gears and play in the kitchen with my niece. Ella is three years old, super smart and super sharp.

I brought her into the kitchen to help make a treat for her cousins but knew there wasn’t much she could do since I was at the stove. I gave her a scoop of marshmallows to count and group together instead. I asked for piles of 3. She knew how to count and knew when she messed up.

#KidsintheKitchen Counting Marshmallows

So while a 3 year old might not be the best helper for cooking they can be the best entertainment while slaving over a hot stove 🙂

What did you and your kids do for dinner this week? Share photos, stories or recipes that include your #kidsinthekitchen. I would love for you to join me and my co-hosts, Paula at Frosted Fingers and Sara at Sensibly Sara, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen. It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together and enjoying it and learning something.

  1. MMMM! Marshmellows!! I bet she had a blast “helping!” And I love her grouping!

  2. She’s super cute, too! We’re into the marshmallows this week. I bought a bag for DD6 since it was 100 days yesterday.

  3. Looks like she a great time and didn’t even know she was doing some good thinking as well as good eating!

  4. Great way to keep her occupied. She’s a cutie!! My kids would have those gone in 2 seconds, they are marshmallow hoarders.

  5. Stephanie says

    Oh my gosh my boys would down an entire bag if I let them (or even if I didn’t). Great way to teach them though 🙂

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I linked up my post on cooking with my grandson. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Sally

  7. My kids love those mini marshmallows. We’ve even crafted with them before! 🙂

  8. Fun! Looks like a great lesson in subtracting marshmallows! Thanks for hosting… off to link up!

  9. I remember with my son we used those mini marshmallows to see if he could grasp with his fingers, then used them again to count to ten. Oh how I miss those days!

  10. Awesome way to learn and have an AWESOME snack at the same time. My little guy (kindergarten) is working on his counting skills in school, so this would be so much fun for him.
