You Will Need:
Milk, potatoes, a peeler, a pot, water, and stove top.
Show your child how to wash and peel the potatoes. Help her carefully peel them, and then cut the potatoes in half and boil them until soft. Drain the water. Then, have her measure and pour in a small amount of milk and butter and mash them together. Adjust your expectations based on the age and skills of your child.
Read and review the recipe with your child before starting. Preparing dinner together is a meaningful way to reconnect after a day apart.
