50+ Fun Recipes for Cooking with Kids in the Kitchen

Cooking with Kids - 50+ Recipes, tips, and ideas

Cooking with kids is wonderfully fun and rewarding whether you bake dessert, whip up a fun snack, or collaborate on dinner. Most young children LOVE to measure and mix, pour and decorate.

Yes, it can be messy sometimes and the finished item may not always look quite as it would if you had cooked it yourself, but you are building memories alongside skills.

Here are more than 50 recipes, tips, and ideas for cooking with kids.
