Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Kids in the Kitchen

Originally introduced by the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in 1978 and updated in 2015, “HEY! WHAT’S COOKING? A Kitchen Curriculum for the Parents of Visually Impaired Children” has kitchen-based activities for children from infancy through teen years. The kitchen, say the authors, “is the place to come for talk, comfort, sharing, togetherness”. While some of the ideas presented may have “aged out” even in the last five years, there is solid, practical information for all age groups that not only covers food preparation, but table manners, kitchen related chores, and food related exploratory activities as well. By the way, they welcome reader suggestions for new updates.
