Someone's in the kitchen

It's a great place to stir up a batch of learning fun

In many households, the kitchen is the principal family gathering place. It's the room where parents and children meet naturally throughout the day to nourish both body and spirit. Often, young children are happiest there - close to and interacting with mom or dad as they go about daily cooking and cleaning chores. Kitchens are both comforting and stimulating - great places for learning to happen.
