Soft cookies with banana coconut raisins and chocolate by Bea
Who said that cooking can’t be fun to share with children?
Cooking with them can be the perfect opportunity to teach them to understand how much care goes into a dish when cooking for them.
Whether it’s a first course, a dessert or simple biscuits, we teach them the awareness of learning to choose. Through the 5 senses, children explore their world, acquiring the ability to become more independent.
Taste plays a fundamental role for children. Doing it in a fun way help them to distinguish the basic flavors, namely sweet, salty and sour.
Between experiments and culinary proposals, ties are created. Ties that then become relationships based on trust. We help them to be curious and creative, to turn insecurity into security.
But I warn you, get ready to receive 10.000 questions as to why!
I’m not a Mother, but among many jobs, I also do babysitting.
I like being with children, they make me happy, even if it is tiring at times. But that “tiredness” satisfies me, turns me on if you can say it.
Children give pure energy, give ideas and smiles.
They make us children again with a unique simplicity. That simplicity, which we sometimes forget we have.
We help them, they help us!
Today I share with you a recipe that in addition to being good, brings with it a day full of joy, songs, smiles and dirty hands, stuck everywhere.
