For those of you with kids, do you do much cooking with them?
What kinds of things do you make with them?
For those who don't have kids, is this something you would like to do?

For those of you with kids, do you do much cooking with them? I cook with them occasionally. It's not my favorite thing as there is always a much bigger mess to clean up afterwards and they don't seem to listen well to instructions.
What kinds of things do you make with them? I have made rice krispie bars, boxed cake mixes, calzones, and cookies with them.
For those who don't have kids, is this something you would like to do?

For those of you with kids, do you do much cooking with them? Well, technically I cook with them every day BUT it's only one child at at time! I've been doing this since they were itty bitties - everyone got their turn, and they learned from a young age that they were a part of the rotating schedule.
What kinds of things do you make with them? For the most part they make dinner with me - they work on the salad first - we do a salad bar type thing - so once everything is out and the lettuce is chopped/torn then they'll help me with whatever it is I'm making. We'll also make treats every now and then. As they get older, we'll start having them make a few things on their own rather than me being right over them. This may simply making the green beans or corn while I work on the main dish. Or maybe I'll have them bbq the chicken and put it in the oven while I do the veggies. That leads into once a month or so making an entire meal for the family on their own.
When they were little bitties, I would get a bowl and put something in it that they could stir or mix around and sit them on the counter or in a high chair (depending on our type of counters and how they were laid out and the age of the child - I loved having corners where they could "sit in the corner" and mix away - no one was ever unattended and no one ever fell)... this was a great way to get my dry beans rinsed and ready for soaking lol. As they got a little older, I'd let them pour things for me - rather than having something they could spill because it was full to the edges, I would measure and pour into a larger cup or whatever and let them pour from that - less mess. You get the idea. It was sort of special one on one time with mommy and it was everyone's favorite dinner time chore
