Where to go From Here

Okay, after processing the good, bad and unexpected of what happened yesterday I need to use figure out how to this information. My next steps are to revisit the design of the meal cards based on how we used them in the kitchen. I am also going to plan another activity for cooking with kids. I will refine the cooking based on the findings from yesterday.

Ideas for another cooking activity:

  • bring compost bin for food scraps
  • give food to family day before so it can be stored in usual locations, not in my bags, to make Gather more realistic
  • using the bowls as organizing tools was helpful for cooking but the kitchen didn’t support that system. It might help to bring set of bowls.
  • provide a challenge of a time limit closer to actual families weeknight timeframe

Further applications will continue to emerge but these are a few good places to start.
