    1. Thanks, Simcha. Ask the kids to help you prepare it. Let them suggest what they want for the filling. When it’s done, they will be eager to taste the work of their beautiful hands.


      1. That’s good that they’re already involved in baking. Get them involved in normal cooking too. Let them take turns preferably weekends in deciding what to cook. Whoever decides, gets to coordinate things, with you in charge.
