5. Make-Your-Own Tacos
Kids often get so used to being served food and told what to eat. The rare opportunity to make their own dinner (without burning down your house, or destroying the floors with toddler style meal preparations) they will find joy in making their own creations! Plus, they can’t complain about that lettuce on their taco, if they put it there themselves! Ownership, kids.
