Cooking activities are a fun and an interactive way to build language skills, such as following directions, describing skills, sequencing skills, and social skills. Language skills can be indirectly targeted through the whole cooking process from start to finish. I found a recipe to make fortune cookies. Here are some ideas to target language skills, while eating fortune cookies. Write a number, a letter, a category, or a kind word on a piece of paper. After the fortune cookies are done baking, grab a fortune cookie to see the surprise. If your child picks the number five, have your child count to five. If you decide to put a kind word in your fortune cookie (i.e. loving, kind, funny), have your child give the fortune cookie to a special person.
