Show the little ones how to prepare a BBQ, so that they will help and you can have fun
Making a barbecue with kids can not only stimulate their imagination, teach them new things and good eating habits, but also it can be easier for you. Take this opportunity to have fun and to share unforgettable moments with the whole family.
Worried about the kids’ safety? By teaching them to follow some simple rules, you will ensure peace around the barbecue, and perhaps you will stimulate them to prepare delicious meals.
The first lesson is to show and clearly explain to them how to light and start the grill several times before letting them try it on their own. This can be easier with LPG BBQ.
Make sure your child is tall enough to easily reach the meat with the tools you use to cook. This will assure they don’t get burned when they reach over the grill.
Explain to them the hot areas of the grill. Thus, you will also avoid your little ones from getting burned.
The basics of health and maintenance
Ask your children to always wash their hands before start cooking and after handling raw meat. In this sense, never put cooked meat on a plate you have used for raw meat.
After everyone’s has eaten and the grill is warmer, teach proper grill cleanup and maintenance. It’s nice to have a BBQ but keeping it clean is vital for the grill to last for years.
Proper use of BBQ tools
Always use long-handled grilling tools to keep you away from the heat. Teach children to use a spatula and wear an apron. They will also be interested if you use a cooking clock.
Choose the Right Place
It is important to choose a suitable place for the barbecue. It must be at least 3 meters away from buildings and fences. The grill should not be near low hanging branches. If you have a fire extinguisher, teach children to use it as well.
Get Children to Help

- peeling and cutting vegetables;
- table preparation, serving napkins and utensils;
- arranging food;
