Learning to cut and use a knife is an important and valuable skill when learning to cook. Try this technique when guiding children in learning to use a knife: tell them to use "scary fingers". Pretend to be a scary creature with them and hold your curled fingers up in air. Then try it on a piece of fruit (or veggie) and practice holding the fruit in place. Last of all, add the knife to the scenario.
