    There’s something to be said for kids being able to make stuff with their own hands, which is something that our society has lost somewhat over the past few generations. There’s something very good for you about being able to create something on your own, or something that you envisioned and then made happen in a concrete way. Food is just one example.

    As schools make more cuts in arts, music, creative writing, and other creative activities, I think you’ll see kids’ interest in cooking increase. There’s something basic about the desire to create stuff.

    I think that’s why there are so many popular TV shows that show people making things, from meals to motorbikes. There’s something appealing about the creative process, especially to people who don’t get a chance to be creative in their jobs. I think seeing people make things based on a creative process is very appealing on a basic human level. I love watching those shows where people make custom motorcycles, and I don’t really have any interest in motorcycles (and I generally dislike the people on those shows). I just think it’s cool to see something go from an idea to a finished product.
