Today’s Topic: Kitchen Safety!

In this video, some general kitchen safety tips:

#1 Knives should be kept as far away as possible and turned away from you

#2 Even after they are turned off, stoves stay hot, be careful so you don’t get burned

#3 It’s important to keep things clean when cooking. Start with clean space and clean up any mess you make.

#4 Parent supervision is important, and it can be fun!

#5 Ask your parent to show you around the kitchen, and how different kitchen tools work.

#6 Don’t forget hand washing before and after you are preparing food.
