Practical Life in the Kitchen: Scrambled Eggs
First and foremost, we wash our hands. Then we transition over to the prep area. After we crack the eggs, she likes watching them slide out of the shell and into the bowl. Next, we add a splash of milk. My daughter's favorite part of making scrambled eggs, by far, is using the whisk. After she finishes mixing the eggs and the milk, she likes to hold up the whisk and watch the egg/milk mixture run down it and slowly drip into the bowl. It makes her giggle.
While I am at the stove warming the ghee in the frying pan, my daughter rips a piece of American cheese into little pieces to add later. She helps me transfer the egg mixture into the frying pan and I scramble the eggs while adding the cheese. Finally, when the eggs are cooked and we are finished at the stove, she holds out her bowl and waits for me to scoop them from the hot pan into the bowl. We wash our hands again and head to the table for breakfast.
Today, my daughter chose a banana from the fruit bowl and a protein shake to accompany her scrambled eggs. She ate all of her breakfast and I wasn't surprised. She usually cleans her plate when she's involved in the process. As she spends more time in the kitchen meal prepping and assisting, she increases in understanding and confidence, and gains more responsibility.
We hope you enjoyed our Practical Life in the Kitchen: Making Scrambled Eggs and it gives you some ideas for fun in the kitchen with your little ones.
