My 4th grader came home yesterday with a pretty cool math project that is near and dear to my heart. The instructions were to research a recipe online, apply what they learned in class to either double, triple or halve the recipe, and if they were brave enough, actually attempt to create the recipe. What a great way, I thought, to teach the kids practical applications of their math skills. I excitedly asked my son what recipe he would attempt to create. “Tandoori Bataka!?” (Nope, was his answer). “Chole Paneer!?” (No) “Pauv Bhaji in an Instant Pot?!” (No Mummy!) “Well, did you even look at my Warrior blog???” I was starting to get a little upset and felt the pangs of betrayal. His reply was, “Mummy, I couldn’t find ANYTHING on your blog that I would want to make. I found this awesome recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies on another website! I think I’ll make those!” It took me a while to shake myself out of the dysphoria and heartache I felt. I know I’m being a bit melodramatic, but it inspired me to do some of my own research and put together this list of 5 delicious and easy recipes that any kid can make (with your help of course), whether for a project, to work on their math skills, or just for fun!
I had to put this recipe at the top of the list, and of course include a picture of the actual cookies my son made. They are deliciously dangerous! Here is the recipe he used.
