So my 6 year old and 7 year old daughters are getting old enough to start cooking by themselves in the kitchen. They have been wanting to for a while but I just didn't want to admit that they grew up! To be honest I am a little over-protective. But I now feel like I need to let them expand their abilities to working in the kitchen. That being said: recently my youngest daughter (she is 2) burned her hand really bad on the stove and it required surgery and therapy etc. SO....when your kiddos are in the kitchen--if they are using the stove to cook please keep a close eye on them to make sure they are safe. I don't want what happened to my daughter to happen to anyone else! Just use caution and it will be a wonderful fun experience for them and for you!
Ok, now that that is outta the way-- Here are some fun, easy, kid-friendly recipes that your kiddos can cook themselves!
INCREDIBLE EDIBLE EGG
Speaking of eggs, this is one of the easiest healthy things kids can learn to cook and their are lots of different ways to cook an egg.
This is the easiest and safest way for kids to cook boiled eggs.
Then turn those boiled eggs into a fun and creative snack.
Classic and easy, but fancy I love this mess-free version!
After they can scramble an egg, they can have some fun making designs with them.
What kid doesn’t like pizza? And there are so many ways to make it!
My kids love to make this pizza because it takes less than 15 minutes to make.
Almost anything can be used for crust, like these heart pizzas!
Challenge their skills with traditional yeast pizza dough.
EASY PEASY SNACKS
Don’t just let your kids raid the pantry. They key to snacks is to have healthy food available for them to prepare for themselves.
These are easy to make and your children can prepare them at the beginning of the week to snack on throughout the week. Plus, they can help kids eat more vegetables!
If this little girl can mix this up all by herself, so can your child. Plus this master recipe allows them to choose what goes into their healthy granola!
These are easy, but they also can be an artistic outlet!
You can’t go wrong with this combo. Mix it up by offering bananas, raisins, or thinly sliced apples to put in their sandwich.
Give your children the tools and ingredients and see what they can come up with!
These are such great ideas! But now they are making me hungry. lol!
Enjoy all these fun ideas with your kids! Yum!
