One of my favorite things to do when the weather is bad with my kids is to cook. It helps us spend time together, it is a mess that I will already have to clean up and I notice that when kids help they are usually more invested in eating the meal, but I don't limit this just to dinners...desserts are also a favorite to cook together, for example my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
|Step 3: Add cheese on top of the chili (we got a little ahead of our selves, but don't worry we remedied the situation)|
|Step 4: Apply a layer of chips to the cheese|
|Step 5: Repeat the steps until all your chili is used.|
|Step 6: Top with Cheese and put in a 350 oven and cook until bubbly.|
One of the things that I learned in my The Incredible Years Parenting class is that you give your children opportunities to be independent and the give them genuine compliments on the things that they have done. This casserole was a perfect way to be able to compliment him on helping make dinner and a good rainy weather activity.
