My kids love to help me cook, which is equal parts rewarding and frustrating. It all starts with good intentions — lessons about healthy food and passed-down recipes — and quickly devolves into an egg-cracking, kale-throwing, glorious mess. Toddlers are super tactile; they want to be elbows-deep, feeling and tasting everything they can get their hands on. So naturally cleanup is a big part of the ritual. Huge.
