Baking & Cooking:

cooking & baking with the kids can be messy and tiresome, but it can also be a lot of fun! It all depends on your attitude. Share with the kids your love of cooking (if you have such a thing...). Even a small child can help a bit: stir, fetch things from the refrigerator, etc. Think of the kids' joy feeling like grown-ups! Not to mention the joy of eating the cookies afterwards.... ;-)
You can also try to do experimental cooking or make dishes from other countries every day (British, Chinese, Italian, French, Spanish, etc...).


Read with the kids. There are many great children's book that are great for grown-ups too. Here's a partial list:
And ofcourse there are many more.....

and the most important thing is...Have Fun! Do Stuff Together!
