Each month Meghan Corridan, a pediatric occupational therapist, joins Catherine to talk about activities that are both fun and therapeutic for kids (and often their adults too).

Meghan also gives us her thoughts on whether kiddie cooking products are worth our time (and our kitchen storage space). Visit Meghan’s blog, MAC&Toys, for more reasons to whip up some cookies with your kids. And if you want your child to surprise you with a homemade Sunday brunch, Catherine suggests letting him watch a show called Man vs. Child: Chef Showdown for inspiration.
