Table setting

Meal prep times can be frantic for parents, and young kids can be a tough distraction. Keep them entertained and focused by giving them table-setting duty. Set them up for success by making all utensils easily accessible and work with them on bigger tasks such as pouring water for all the family members. The folks at the Little Light Family have some great ideas for setting up a table-setting station so this task is always achievable for your independent kid. 

For special occasions, have them branch out and learn a new skill — flower arranging. Nell at Rhythms of Play has some great ideas for teaching kids the art of flower arranging.
