I was making lunches the other day and I got to the bottom of the peanut butter jar. There is more than one task in the kitchen that I’m not too fond of, and mixing a new jar of natural peanut butter is one of them.
As I started to grumble inside and get the new jar out, It finally donned on me. The light in my brain flashed on! I was told once to mix mortar and grout for tiling to be the thickness of peanut butter. I had to mix a bunch of it and decided I’d use a paddle attachment for my power drill to mix a bucket full. Why not use the same technique for actual peanut butter?
Enter the Easy Way.
I attached one of the kitchen mixer paddles to the cordless drill and BAM. Done. As it turns out, I wasn’t the first to figure this out. Apparently YouTube is loaded with kitchen hack videos showing this.
Let’s make something like this intentionally educational for our children.
In the comments below, answer the following question: How could your children engage with this activity to make it educational? For example: Use a stop watch measure how long it takes with the power tool.
What are your ideas?
