"Sims 4's" upcoming patch will include new activities Sims can enjoy with their families, according to EA. 

One of activity is cooking. Players will be able to select up to five Sims present in the lot to cook a meal together in the kitchen. Group cooking will result in better quality meals with more servings, plus a new sentiment can be received by the participating Sims. 

Children can also be chosen as part of the group and will actually gain a Mental skill as a result. 

Speaking of children, they will be able to do gardening activities when the new "The Sims 4" update arrives. All child Sims will be able to water plants in the garden, but must unlock Mental skill thresholds before they can weed, plant, and harvest. 

Those who can plant can also choose which container they can plant the seed in. Options include pot, planter, and patch. 

Children and even toddlers will have the option to talk to plants depending on their Communication skill level.

The first artist to feature in the next "The Sims 4" update is Mohammed Iman Fayez, who describes his piece "A Recipe for Good Times" as "some sweetness, some tenderness, some silliness, and some love. A recipe for good times."

The second artist is Ashley Lukashepsky. EA describes her art pieces as one that conveys "the idea that our liberations are interlinked, and that we need to look out for each other."

Aside from new art, players can also expect new hair in the upcoming patch to add to the many Create A Sim options already available. The new hair will be a modernized version of the large afro hairstyle.
