Walter loves to help in the kitchen, which is great, but it can a real pain in the neck when you're just trying to get dinner on the table. So the other night, while we were cooking, I found a box of expired Minute Rice in the back of the cupboard. I set Walter up with the rice, plastic bowls and a measuring cup. He could scoop and measure and pour and stir, right along with us. Cheap toy, happy kid, dinner on the table – score!
