3-6 years old
In this second kids' cooking lessons, kids will
practice using a non-sharp knife to spread. This is a basic cooking
skill that kids love to do and using these two fun kid recipes is a
good way for them to practice.

Choose one of the following kids recipes:
Cream cheese or cheese spread
Allow your child to create these spiders. Spread cheese on top of
one cracker. Add pretzel sticks on top of cheese for legs. Put
another cracker on top, (you may need to add more cheese.) Add a dab
of cheese on top of cracker and attach raisins for eyes. You can
also substitute peanut butter for the cream cheese, if desired.
Let kids experiment and they might come up with
their own version like this one:
Green apples, cut in slices
Green grapes, cut in half
Mini chocolate chips
Adult should cut apple into slices leaving green peel on. Allow
child to spread peanut butter on top of apple slice and layer
another slice on top. Add dabs of peanut butter on top and attach
green grapes. Add another dab of peanut butter and place chocolate
chips on for eyes.
Add baby spinach under the frogs for lily pads.
More Spreading Activity:
Frost cupcakes, make their own peanut butter and jelly
sandwich or spread mayonnaise on bread for a deli meat sandwich.
