When engaged in cooking activities like making a salad or squeezing lemons to make lemonade, children build their vocabulary of food and cooking-related terms and also develop their fine motor skills. Children with well-developed fine motor skills can control a pencil and write with control later on. Cooking activities also encourage healthy eating, independence and sense of accomplishment. Kids become responsible with more focus, confidence and attention. Their basic math, science and other life skills are built. Children begin to explore through their senses and also get excited to try something new every day. On the whole, language development is also induced.
