ADVENTURE INTO DELICIOUS CREATIONS
Middle Schoolers are CONNECTION MAKERS! Connection to others is the cornerstone of our lives and, for middle schoolers, it just may be the entire building! Build up those connections by cooking a meal as a household.
If you’re new to the cooking game, keep those fire extinguishers on hand! Take on our cooking challenges and send up pictures of our delicious dishes!

MOMENT OF JOY
THE GOOD STUFF
Watch + Learn
So many fun facts within communication and the teenage brain (for quick communication tips check out 10:25-12:15 and, to get the “why” behind it, watch it in its entirety. 12:22).
Work together and create an amazing meal! Add the ingredients you have in the fridge or pantry here and see what recipes pop up, or whip up (or create) your family’s own secret recipe. Whatever you decide to create, do it together! Check out developmentally appropriate cooking tasks at eatgathergo.org.
Looking for new mealtime conversation starters? Use the following questions as prompts and let the chatting begin! Don’t talk with your mouth full!
- What is your most valued social and/or family connection?
- How does connection improve and complicate your life?
Student Design Challenge
Show off your cooking skills and (with permission) create and cook a meal for your household. Make it weird, make it colorful, or make it according to the recipe, just be sure to make it edible. If you need a theme, make something based on your mood, the day of the week, or your favorite color! Order up!
