I am so fortunate to be exposed to kitchen work by my parents at an early age. Even though I may not be the best when it comes to preparing exceptional and most delicious meals. However, I’m fully proud to say that I’m fairly comfortable in experimenting and even recreating dishes for my family.
Cooking has now turned into an easy task and even fun to me as a lady and I think it’s a valuable skill to pass on to your kids as I am currently doing.
In this article, I will introduce you to the best free culinary online games that have been of good help to me when I was young.
The benefits of having kitchen skills
Beside building the morale of a person in the kitchen, possessing a good set of kitchen skills brings many benefits to a person.
Personally, knowing how to cook has been of help to me throughout my life. Whilst I was on campus, I found out that most of my other female colleagues who were not having kitchen skills spent lots of money on buying cooked food. Others also hired cooks to prepare food for them. I used the little skills I had, prepared, and sold food on campus which helped me to save more money. Now, I run 2 big restaurants which I am planning on opening more branches in addition.
I find kitchen work to be relaxing. The cutting, slicing, and chopping involved in preparing the ingredients for our meal is a good way for me to take a break from my usual routine. As such, I consider it to be a good stress reliever.
Furthermore, being able to prepare your food using fresh ingredients is a lot healthier than, say, takeaway food. Not only that, you can eat your favorite food items anytime you want to if you know how to cook them.
Free online culinary games for kids
Children always feel so excited to be involved in the kitchen when preparing dishes for the family. I see it to be a great opportunity for collaborative parenting and co-creation to help boost their self-confidence level. Some light kitchen work will also aid in the development of their motor skills and coordination.
However, not all children may be ready or immediately excited to help out in the kitchen. A good way to expose them to kitchen skills is through online culinary games.
Here are some of the online culinary games that they can try:
1. Burger Maker
Burger Maker is a free online game that helps children to learn how to prepare burgers. It is a fun game in which the player will be tasked to assemble the ingredients according to the correct order which is from bottom to top. The goal is to be able to create the perfect custom-made burger within a 10 to 15-second time frame.
As soon as the player is done with the ingredients list, they will have to click the “serve now” button under the finished burger to serve it to the customer. This game is perfect for second or third graders but older students may find Burger Maker uninteresting.
How To Play The Burger Maker Game
Step 1: Launch the game by clicking here
Step 2: Turn sound on or off. At the top right corner, you will see the settings gear which can help you to either turn on or off the sound as well as to turn the game to full screen mode.
Step 3: Click on “Play Now”. After clicking on play now, the screen below will appear with the burger ingredients showing in a picture form on the left hand side. You will also see the time left, and a list of the ingredients written in word in a descending order at the bottom left corner.
Step 4: Starting from number 1, select your ingredients in the order as indicated.
Step 5: When done, click “Serve Now” and repeat the process until the time is up. Your score will appear and that depends on how fast you have been.
2. Nickelodeon Cooking Contest
Aside from the Burger Maker game, the Nickelodeon Cooking Contest is one of the exciting games you should try together with your kids. It is a food preparation compilation game consisting of 10 different mini-games.
This game invites you to make Holland Oats, a Krabby Patty, Sushi Dushi, a Kelp Shake, donuts, avocado toast, sponge cake, Love Muffins, Hudson’s Juice Blend, and steak & potatoes. This game teaches children how to slice food, mixing ingredients, and timing cooking meals.
It is fun and exciting to play. Kindly click here to test it out yourself.
If you are thinking of a better future for your children as I am, then try your best to teach them how to prepare their own hygienic foods.
Some women of today marry without knowing how to prepare food for their husbands which at the end brings challenges into their marriages. I don’t mostly blame them as it could be as a result of their parents not introducing them to cooking whilst they were you.
