In the camp of Natural School in Russia kids had to decide themselves when and what to cook* when they were hungry. And then cook that, learning all kinds of handy things on the way (e.g. how much work it takes to make a pancake cake and how many people it could feed at the end).
Now they are standing in the kitchen making pancakes for breakfast, using the recipe from the camp (which has more sugar than I’d like to :)). Once the sugar issue is fixed and we see how the cleaning afterwards goes), I should be very happy with this learning transfer – at some point of life in a family with three kids I’ve learnt that there is nothing tastier than the pancakes you don’t bake yourself.
* They also had to decide themselves about a lot of other things and then live with the implications of that.
