Children love to role play whatever you are doing. Collect small boxes that food comes in and stuff them with wadded up paper to help keep their shapes. Tape each box closed. You may want to give your child a low cabinet to keep the boxes. Begin by stacking the boxes on the floor, then see if your child is interested in imitating you in the kitchen. Your child may want to build a tower with the boxes or simply place them in and out of the cabinet.
