Age guide
During Thanksgiving there is a lot of cooking going on in the kitchen. Make sure you have a 3 foot "kid-free" zone around the stove. Print out and make your own "kid-free" zone marker to show children exactly where the 3 foot mark is.

However, the holidays are also a great time to let kids help out in the kitchen. NFPA has developed an age-aprropriate guide for each age group, 3-5yrs, 6-8yrs, 9-12yrs and over 14 years. These guides give you ideas that kids in each group can help out with!  

Download and print the guide from Sparky's Parent page and get your kids in the kitchen to help out today!
