Toddler Cooking Activity – Pretend and Real

Toddler Cooking Activity - Pretend and RealFor Edison’s 2nd birthday, we went to a used children’s store and bought him a play kitchen and a bag of plastic food. He knew what to do with most of the food. He boiled the peas, put the pizza in the oven, etc.

But, when it came to the fake syrup and waffles, he stuck them in a drawer with the cooking utensils. Aside from a few times when we eased his teething with pieces of frozen waffles, he really didn’t have much experience with them.

So, we gathered up his plastic waffles, pretend syrup,  fake pat of butter, and a plate. Then, he helped me get the real versions of each item. As I toasted the frozen waffles, put them on a plate, drizzled them with syrup, and topped them with a pat of butter; he followed along with his plastic food.

It actually ended up being a lot of fun and we were able to make lunch at the same time. Plus, now he knows what to do with those weird square plastic things that Mom keeps referring to as waffles.
