One thing to about when getting your kids in the kitchen is to think about what you’re going to make. How much your kids are going to be able to help. How much can they do on their own. Can they do it entirely on their own.
Kids in the Kitchen – Recipes for Kids

I have more than a couple recipes in in my recipe box here, that you can pick and choose from. The first thing that Austin made (besides sandwiches) was corn chowder. A meal that she already loved, and one that has very few ingredients that you need to prep. She has since moved on to other recipes that she loves to make for lunch a few times a week.
Picking something they love to eat is a great why to get reluctant chefs or bakers in the kitchen.
There are a lot cookbooks out there specially made for kids. We have checked a lot out of the library, and love this Berenstain Bears one so much that we own it. It helps to be familiar with the recipe yourself, so you know what they should be doing each step.
Recipes for Kids
I have a number of recipes that you can make with your kids, or that your kids can make with little to no help.
This is in no way the only things that you your kids can make of course. Have fun, get in the kitchen and make a mess. After all, cleaning up afterwards is all part of the cooking experience.
