Pizza Smileys

Cooking with kids is one activity where you can make up for the time you otherwise don’t get to spend with your kids. This not only teaches them the basic life skill of cooking but also helps in building enormous amounts of self-confidence in them. Your kids will get a hands-on experience and it will also give way to your child’s imagination to run wild. And don’t forget to praise him as he preps up the meal.
