In this month's edition of In the Kitchen with Hadley and Lizzy, the girls make Christmas cookies with their friend Wyatt.
Having kids help in the kitchen introduces them to all kinds of new foods, helps teach math, shows kids how to follow steps in order, teaches critical thinking and problem solving, helps develop fine motor skills, and so much more! And most importantly, it allows you to spend quality time with your kiddos!
Cutting out and decorating Christmas cookies is something kids of ALL abilities can help with, so get in that kitchen and get to cooking!
