Joshua is a big boy now. He always wants to be the one to do things. You will hear him say, “Joshua will do it” or “I want to do it”. He even cried several occasions when I did not listen to him and did the chore myself.
It’s a good age. He wants to wash his own hands, he chooses what he wants to wear, he does chores like clean the floor with a broom. All I have to do is ask if he is open to doing it… And most of the time I get a “yes”.
One afternoon, I had to think of a good snack for Josh. Making a home made pizza is one fun activity. Of course it would be under mom and dad’s supervision.
- Pizza dough
- Tomato sauce (you can make your own using whole peeled tomatoes, pepper, white onions, oregano, basil leaves, and a little sugar boiled in a pan until it becomes thick).
- Cheese – mozzarella if you can find mixed with some cheddar
- Ham/ mushrooms/ onions/
A toaster oven can fit this pizza. After 12-15 minutes we have a a great afternoon snack all made by little chef, Joshua. He made 3 pizzas! One for dad, one for mommy, and one for himself. Kids this age would love hands on stuff because they know they are more capable and willing to try.
