Shrimp Scampi Skillet

The boys have loved learning to cook this summer! They were especially proud making this for Papa and Grandma and having Papa give it a 10/10!

Cooking with your children is about so much more than the food! So many skills are learned: measurement, fractions, time, cutting, kitchen safety, sequencing, i independence, problem solving, and more! My favorite part is always seeing how proud they are when everyone gets to enjoy something they made!
