Kids in the Kitchen
Find fun cooking ideas and more to do with kids of all ages.
Ask your kids to imagine what their dream meals—breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert—would look like. Have them decorate their own menus with these foods with art supplies, and older kids may be interested in trying their hand at graphic design. You can create menus with Adobe Spark.
Encourage kids to play restaurant or grocery store with all the food and kitchen toys they have. They can design the menu for what their restaurant serves and set up the restaurant however they want. Continue the creativity with table decorating. Kids can set the table, design place-mats and decorate with centerpieces, flowers, candles and whatever else they see fit. Since this is a special occasion, break out the fancy china and glasses! Food served can include toys, or have them make the items out of play dough. Shop the aisles at the grocery store and run the items up at the cash register.
Compete and star in your own family cooking challenge. Pair kids and adults together. Write down cuisines, such as Mexican, Italian or Greek, and different ingredients you have on hand. Put the categories in two different hats, and create a meal using your chosen cuisine and ingredient.
