Making Scrambled Eggs with Four Year Old

Out of all three of my kids, the four year old boy seems to be the one who wants to do everything by himself. Yes, even things he should not be doing by himself. I praise him for his independent nature and try my best to encourage it. That is why he has a love of eggs, cracking eggs that is.

Egg Cracking Four Year Old

K-man loves scrambled eggs, it is the only type of eggs he will eat for breakfast. While my other two kids are all for omelets, fried eggs, and scrambled eggs, K-man will only eat “fluffy scrambled eggs” and usually they are preferred if made by his Dad because I tend to not make them fluffy as Daddy does, so says K-man. Maybe the fact that K-man doesn’t trust my scrambled eggs skills makes him more apt to help Mama when making his breakfast meal of scrambled eggs.

Scrambled Eggs Made Rigth

K-man is so funny about cracking his eggs and to boot, he rarely ever gets any shell into the cracked egg in the bowl. He stares at that egg, taking time to crack it just right and when done, he beams with pride! K-man will crack 2 eggs in a bowl, help me put some milk in it and then use a whisk or fork to stir it all up. Then he helps me pour the egg mixture into the pan while watching me cook his scrambled eggs in the way he tells me to do.

My little independent four year old is the man, he is so interested in everything about his world that it is wonderful and scary at the same time.

    It’s awesome that you let him help in the kitchen. We do the same around here, and it’s fun. It’s a great way to make memories too…I still have very fond ones from cooking w/my grandmother and believe me, that was a looooooooong time ago. ;)

    I love those inquisitive minds and how differently our children learn. A big thumbs up for letting him tackle this on his own!!
