Kids feel important when they help their parents around the house. Who knew when kids help set the table they are learning so many things? In addition to sorting, counting, and placement kids are learning responsibility by having a job to do at meal time. It also helps them develop a sense of importance to their family. There is a natural order in things we do. Preparing for the meal is the beginning, eating the meal is the middle, and cleaning up after the meal is the end. When kids participate in each step, they have a clear understanding of this concept.
