Mini Cooks is a fun course introducing your little ones to cooking tasks such as stirring, mixing, counting, pouring, spooning, measuring cups, adding ingredients, tearing, assembling and rolling which all helps them to develop eye hand coordination, fine motor skills, builds vocabulary and listening skills, cognitive and academic skills and even early concepts of maths and science.
The experience of creating dishes with you helps to build their self-confidence and lays the foundation for healthy eating habits. Mixing and rolling the ingredients and using cookie cutters are all great ways to enhance a child’s fine motor strength and control. These skills develop other skills such as writing, cutting and colouring. We help them to improve these skills even more by allowing them to slowly pour ingredients into a bowl or quickly mix ingredients together.
