Delicious Details

Invite kids to put on their chef hats – and listening ears!

What They’ll Learn

Kids will recall the instructions from a recipe in order to make a fun and healthy snack.


During snack time, talk with your child about how important listening is, especially in the kitchen. Following directions in a recipe helps us make yummy things to eat!

Pick a simple snack recipe that has 3-5 steps. (See below for suggestions.)

Start by presenting one step of the recipe at a time. Then, gradually increase to multistep directions. Use language such as "first," "next," and "last" to help describe the order of the steps (e.g., “First, you spread tomato sauce on the bagel. Next, sprinkle some cheese on top.”).

See how many details your child can recall as they assemble the snack.

Enjoy the snack together!
