It can be easy, in the rush of a busy day, to NOT get the kids involved in cooking.
I have certainly found myself cooking on my own because honestly, it can be a lot less work. That being said, right now many of us are revisiting our normal routines, and may even have willing helpers!
What a great opportunity to learn new skills.
Some local restaurants have Pizza To Go Kits, a perfect meal for little helpers! Find our list of Pizza To Go Kits in Hampton Roads Here!
