Whether it's whipping up a batch of cookies or conquering a four-course meal, spending time in the kitchen with your daughter is an easy way to have fun together. For younger girls, keep it simple with brownies from a mix. Older daughters might prefer to attempt something more sophisticated, like baking a cake from scratch -- or you can teach her a few of your grilling tricks. Collaborating on a menu and shopping at the grocery store can reinforce life skills of teamwork and financial responsibility as well.
If you aren't handy in the kitchen, this may be a good opportunity for your daughter to turn the tables and teach you a thing or two. This more egalitarian kitchen environment can foster conversation and sharing. Finally, enjoying the delicious fruits of your labor will make for a sweet memory.
