Hosting a big family dinner, baking cookies or just making snacks? Your child can be a great helper. And you can make sure they’re building reading skills.

Read the recipe together. What comes first, next and last? Count and measure everything together.

Put your child in charge of writing the grocery list. Draw and list items out together.

Bring the five senses to life. Talk about how things look, smell, feel and taste.

Write a family recipe book. Add photos and memories.

Spread the love. Make homemade holiday cards to share treats with family and friends.
