Cooking Tool of the Week: Kitchen Scale

Add a scale to your kitchen for some extra math as well as fun. Kitchen scales come in all sizes, shapes, and colors and run the gammet in pricing. We picked this one up at the dollar store and it is working just perfect. Scaled by ounces, this is a perfect way for children to measure and compare the size of their cookies, energy balls, apple slices, or other cooking projects.

So the next time your children are fighting over the brussel sprouts, pull out the scale and show them that just because she got 5 of them, your 4 is equal weight! ;)
