Children can be a part of daily life if they have a place made for them. The parent is the one who "Prepares the place".
On rainy days, like the ones we are having in Houston, we are forced to be inside. Children are able to help with meals or snacks with just a little parent help.
Put the small plates, glasses, and napkins where children can reach. At lunch time place sandwich fillings on serving plate, and condiments in small containers. Say, " I know you can make your own sandwich." Show them how to spread condiments with the "butter knife" then add filling and top with bread and enjoy! They can make a sandwich for one or for everyone. Everyday is a day to learn new things!
