Apps: Chocolalapps – KID e-Cook

Kids e cook logoWhen Aristotle was little, he loved to play pretend cook. When he was old enough, I let him try out a cooking class at Marche. Since he enjoyed it so much, I tried to sign him up for classes. But since he only wanted to cook what he liked, it didn’t really work because we had to follow their program. In the end, he only cooked at home when I was up to the challenge and the mess of cooking with a young child. When I wasn’t, I would let him play cooking games on the computer.

These days he’s helping out in the kitchen and making a few of the treats that he likes to eat:

Now Hercules is demonstrating a similar interest to cook. Being a more impetuous child than his brother, having him in the kitchen is a lot more stressful. So I found him a really cool cooking app instead…
