Little kitchen helper

Age: 18 months and older

Time: 5 minutes

Equipment: a hard boiled egg / satsuma (at least 2 of one or the other) , bowl or plate

Development: fine motor skills, learning  about food and cooking, taking turns with you and asking for help

Encourage your child to watch you peel a satsuma or hard boiled egg, and get him involved by telling him what you’re doing, then gently pulling the skin or shell off.

With then second egg or satsuma, give it to your child to hold, move around and experience how it feels.  This time, encourage your child to peel it himself, although you’ll probably have to start it off. Make sure you’re watching so he doesn’t try to eat any stray bits of eggshell or satsuma peel!
