Proud boy with a plate of sushi he made himself.  I just love that I get to be home with my kids and teach them things like making sushi.  Here is some of the fun we had learning how to make sushi:

  • looked up recipe online
  • bought ingredients at the store
  • read and followed directions
  • Learned some fine motor and detail work, patience, and perseverance – assembling, rolling, and cutting 10 rolls of the stuff.
  • Math – how much did we save when 8 rolls costs $6 at the store and we made 50 rolls for the cost of our ingredients and labor.  The result is about $40 worth of sushi for about $8.  🙂

The best part?  Everyone got to eat as much as they could until they were full.  The even better part?  My kids are learning how to make dinner!!

How much ‘school’ do you do in the kitchen?  Do you have any kid friendly recipes and activities to share?

Enjoy!

    Battenburg cake, a traditional UK cake, is fun to play with – cross-sections, flavours, amount of marzipan for perimeter etc…
    http://bronmarshall.com/?p=99 is a St George’s Day variation
    Here’s the Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battenberg_cake
    Here’s a good recipe if you want to make your own marzipan too:

    What a great idea! I’ve always wanted to learn how to make that. Can you link to the recipe(s) you used?
