I think it's pretty cool that my 5 year old likes getting involved in the kitchen, so last week it wasn't a big surprise that she pulled out her ducky stool to see how I was going to cut up a pineapple.
Step 1: cut off the top and bottom
Me: What shapes did I make?
Step 2: cut off the skin
Me: What shape do you see now?
Layne: ...a hexagon?
Me: Close, how many sides does it have?
Me: What kind of animal has eight legs?
Layne: An octopus.
Me: Yeah, so what do you think the name of this 8 sided shape might be?
Step 3: cut into 8 segments
Me: Now what did we make?
Step 4: Cut the core off of each segement
(I don't even have to prompt for for this one)
Step 5: cut into bite size pieces and eat
