Cooking Kits for Kids from Kidstir
My son has aspirations of being a chef and restaurant owner one day, and he is really passionate about all things related to cooking. He would rather look at kitchen gadgets than toys, and he is already adept at cooking full meals for our family. He loves to experiment in the kitchen and is inspired by new techniques and recipes.

When I found out about Kidstir cooking kits for young chefs, I knew we had to try them. These cooking kits for kids are available as a one time purchase or as a monthly subscription.
Kidstir sent us the Grab & Go Snacks kit to try, and we liked it so much, I ordered a recurring Kidstir subscription for my son. He recently received the Spooky Celebration kit and is making the goodies from it for our costume party. The Grab & Go Snacks cooking kit for kids includes recipes for yogurt bark, kale chips, and animal crackers. Since the kit also includes fun spring-action animal cookie cutters, my son wanted to try the animal crackers recipe first.
Each recipe card contains clear step-by-step directions that kids can follow, along with lots of color photographs so you can see what to expect. This is definitely a must for kid chefs. The colorful and fun design of the cards are visually appealing and kid-friendly.
I helped by getting all the tools and ingredients laid out first, and then my kid chef went to work measuring, mixing, and creating.
The animal cracker recipe is fun to prepare and includes healthy ingredients like whole wheat flour, honey, and cinnamon. My son found that he had to dust the rolled out dough with flour each time to get the cookie cutters to release the dough–and they turned out great.
The Grab & Go Snacks kit also includes reusable mesh veggie bags to take along on grocery shopping trips, a packet of toppings for the yogurt bark, and additional cards with games and activities, as well as educational foodie pages. These are fun additions, especially for younger kids, but the main things my son focuses on are the recipes themselves and the cooking tools. A subscription includes a recipe binder to store the cards in, and my son has already started filling his up. Click the following link to learn more and get a discount on your first kit: Kidstir.com
