Do you like to cook in the kitchen with your kids? I do and my kids usually like to cook with me as well. Depending on what I make they may or may not eat our creations though! It doesn’t matter because it’s important that we are together as a family doing something we enjoy and to spend time together. National Geographic has given our family the opportunity to enjoy getting in the kitchen with the kids.
