Involve Your Preschoolers In Making Quick & Easy Dinners

Involving your preschooler in the kitchen can be a great way to not only bond and have fun, but also to teach them valuable skills such as measuring and following a recipe! Here are three quick and easy dinner ideas that your child can help prepare:


Tacos are a simple and delicious meal that your preschooler can easily help assemble. Start by cooking up some ground beef or turkey, then set out a variety of toppings such as diced tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, and salsa. Have your preschooler help you fill the taco shells with the meat and toppings, then let them top their own tacos with their favorite ingredients! Serve with a side of beans and rice for a complete meal.

Homemade pizza

Making homemade pizza is a fun and interactive activity that your preschooler can help with! Start by having them help you mix together dough and roll it out into a circle. Then, let them spread on tomato sauce and add their choice of toppings such as diced veggies, cheese, and meats. Place the pizza in the oven and have your child help you keep an eye on it as it bakes. Once it’s done, slice it up and enjoy!

Mac and cheese

Macaroni and cheese is a classic kid-friendly meal that your preschooler can easily help make! Start by boiling a pot of water and cooking the macaroni according to the package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, have your preschooler help you mix together milk, cheese, and butter to make the sauce. Once the pasta is done, drain it and mix it together with the cheese sauce. Transfer the mac and cheese to a baking dish and top with breadcrumbs or more cheese. Bake in the oven until the top is golden brown and bubbly.

Cooking with your preschooler can be a fun and rewarding experience for both of you. Not only will you be able to spend quality time together, but your preschooler will also learn valuable skills that will benefit them for years to come! With these three quick and easy dinner ideas, you can have a delicious meal on the table in no time!
