Teach Your Kids To Cook While Having Fun!

Do you have a budding chef in your midst? Do your kids love to help in the kitchen and want a little more independence in their cooking? Or do you simply want to teach your kids to cook and learn the basics of kitchen safety? No matter your child’s skill level, helping out in the kitchen can be a great family bonding activity, teach lifelong skills, and be totally fun!

My kids love being in the kitchen with me. They love mixing, stirring, adding ingredients, and even coming up with their own fun recipes. My daughter has even made a few recipes of her own that have turned out pretty awesome! While they already have a little experience in the kitchen, and I try to teach them how to properly use tools such as knives, measuring accurately, etc., we were all still pretty excited to try out our new Kidstir subscription.

Teach Your Kids To Cook with Kidstir

Kidstir makes it easy to help teach your kids to cook while learning and having fun together as a family. Each month, you get delicious recipes, along with cool tools, fun games, and foodie activities all sent to you in a subscription box. It’s like a fun gift every time the box arrives and the kids can’t wait to see what they’ll be cooking up that month!

What’s In The Box? The first box we received was ‘Sandwich Shop’ where the kids could make Pack-‘n-Go Pinwheels, Turkey Club Subs, and Egg Salad Puzzlers. Along with the easy to follow recipes, their box also included a Sandwich Spreader, a Puzzle-Me-This! tool for cutting out sandwiches, plus Super Sub Stickers for lunchtime fun.

Here are my kids telling you all about their box – they had just opened it and were exploring the contents and recipes:

As you can see, the kids really like getting a surprise box every month (they didn’t know the contents but I get an email ahead of time letting me know the theme and shopping list). Since they love being in the kitchen, the easy to follow recipes are perfect for them to try out some new foods, learn a few new skills, and have tons of fun!

Once we got all the ingredients, my daughter was excited to utilize her tools to walk you through making her very own school lunch — all by herself.

While this particular ‘recipe’ isn’t that complicated, the kids learn about food combinations and get practice in the kitchen, and even develop reading skills as they read through the instructions. There are other recipes that are more complicated, but she chose this one for her lunch because it was fun for her to put together.

Kidstir Sample Recipes

Some of the additional things we’ve made via our Kidstir kits are the go bananas chocolate surprise banana bread, apple crisp, witch’s brew, and more!

The nice thing is that the kids are making their own cookbooks every time they get a new box with recipe cards. We simply utilize the recipe, then file it into their cookbook so they can come back to it again any time they like. {Cookbook binders are included free when you sign up for a 12-month subscription!}

Your kit even includes some fun activities for the kids to complete.

    I really like the idea of kids learning how to cook or prepare their lunches at a young age. Making the process fun and easy is beneficial for both the parents and kid(s). It is another opportunity to spend time together. Reply

    This sounds awesome. I have 7 kids and 5 of them just really love helping out in the kitchen so I know they'd love something like this! I will have to check it out some more! Reply

    This is brilliant!! Very unique and a perfect gift for a child or pretween. One of my 11 year old twins would LOVE this. What a great way to build life skills. Reply

    I love this. Some of my favorite memories are of being in the kitchen with our girls when they were younger. These is something special about cooking. Reply
