Get Cooking on National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day
Whether you’re hooked on Masterchef Junior or love watching young chefs do their thing on shows like Chopped Junior, one thing is clear: kids love being in the kitchen. Involving your child in cooking can set them up with extremely useful life skills, not to mention offer the opportunity to try new things and learn about healthy eating. September 13th is National Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day, so why not get the whole family involved?
Here’s some ideas to get you started!
Briena and Britney are two sisters who’ve been cooking up a storm since age 5, and know a thing or two about making awesome food. We can’t think of a better dessert than unicorn cupcakes!
We love Kid Size Cooking’s take on grilled cheese. Why have a boring lunch when you can have a rainbow sandwich?
Ice cream cupcakes with a no-mixer-required buttercream icing makes a great way to start your little ones out in the kitchen, and using a plate under measuring cups is a great tip for minimum mess.
Hilah’s channel is a treasure trove of great recipes you can make with your kids, including sweet potato pancakes and even sushi. A great channel to check out if you’d like to make Kids Take Over the Kitchen a regular event in your home.
