I think it is so important to create in the kitchen with your children. I've been letting my daughter help me in the kitchen since she could hold a spoon! She loves to help and always pulls up a chair to the counter and wants to at least see what I am doing! We've made so many recipes together. Our most recent endeavor has been to make this incredible guacamole recipe from my brother! (YUM!) My daughter loves avocados, but hasn't really acquired a taste for guacamole yet, but she enjoyed helping to make it!!!!! I let her slice the avocado (after it has been halved, seeded, and peeled) with a butter knife and it is so easy for a young child to cut because it is so soft! She loves avocados sliced with Italian Dressing!
