Do you see or notice your kid pretending to cook? He has a creative mind and is resourceful because he uses his other toys as kitchen utensils at the same time ingredients. If the kid has siblings and is old enough to play with him, they join him too. They imagine themselves in a kitchen cooking up whatever they feel like it. However, would not it be nicer to see them play in toy kitchens? A cook station for each of them is somewhat neat.
Documenting what the kids are doing in their pretend kitchen is so nice to do and then watch it repeatedly until they become adults. Children may not be very aware of what they are doing and why they are doing it hence it is the responsibility of the parents to explain this to them. The funny thing here is when the parents remember this one instance in their lives wherein they pretend to be someone and then the children get to be the same person they pretended to be when they were little.
Despite the fact that people call it toy kitchens, they still help a lot in the development of the kids. Children are able to differentiate one knife from the other when taught properly. They too can understand why certain things need to are finished before cooking the food in the pan. Mastering slicing and chopping ingredients is one of the main things the pretend kitchen aims. Children can help in preparing the needs in the recipe and then hand them over to their mom when required. More so, when they get older, they too will be the ones to cook and prepare the meals of the family.
It is nice to see that the children continue what they are doing when they were little and eventually help in some of the chores. When the kids take over the kitchen, the parents can just sit down and relax while waiting for the served food. It is now the time that the children do whatever they can to lessen the work their parents are doing for them. If the kids like what they are doing, they can eventually start their own business to help support their family.
Funny how pretending turns to reality. From simple toy kitchens becoming real kitchens, this is something parents love to see. Their perseverance and determination paid off because their parents were there to help them out in the things that they are doing. It does not matter whether the task is hard or easy, the important thing here is that children enjoy what they are doing. When they see that they are good at it, they might be able to start a career thus making them exceptionally gifted. Not every kid is able to enjoy his childhood because there are times that he must work to help his or her parents. However, they still should have some playtime because that is what children do aside from studying of course.
