  1. gwendolyn says

    These are some really great recipes. I can’t wait to try them out with my daughter. We are homeschooling and this will be a wonderful way to incorporate math into cooking.

    • Rhiannon Murphy says

      I really want to try out these recipes with my 9 year old daughter!! There are some great ones that she would like to help with.

      • Ali Renee Santell says

        As a college student with no children of my own yet, I actually think it would be fun to make some of these myself!

  2. Jackie says

    My daughters are older now, but when they were young they loved to help me cook. Learning to cook not only teaches a good skill..,.but helps teach math (measuring). Now that they are older (teens) they love to bake and try new recipes. These looks like some fun and easy recipes.

  6. clarissa says

    A great collection of recipes. I try to get all my children started cooking young. Such a useful skill to have in life

  7. Anna Memphis says

    Cooking at a young age is something that’s new to me — I’m in my late 20s, and my mom’s idea of “letting me help” was to let me lick the spoon! That said, I’m always cooking now, so perhaps my kid is going to be more than spoon-motivated.

  8. courtney hennagir says

  20. says

    It’s a great idea to get kids in to cooking when they are young. I wish I had done that with my son. If I had done that, maybe he would be able to make more than just macaroni and cheese. lol Thanks for the great article!

  21. says

    Great ideas!! Both my boys love to bake with me…they are still not very interested in cooking, but maybe these recipes will change that!

  34. becky vanderpool says

    Wonderful ideas, my daughter is starting to show interest recently in helping me in the kitchen so i think it would be fun to try a few of these out with her.

  35. says

    I make these fun little ‘ice creamless ice cream cones” with my daughter. Take a sugar ice cream cone- putt a caramel square in the bottom of it, add a layer of chocolate chips then put a Marshmallow on top. Put it in the micro for like 15-23 seconds depending on how strong yours is. The marshmallow puffs up like an ice cream would look.

  36. Lisa Konieczke says

    My Daughter Hailey is 8 yrs old and loves to help me in the kitchen. She always asks to stir or add the ingredients. Though Im over afraid she will get burned or hurt somehow, I have to let her help. She loves to help me with my Chicken and Penne Casserole, she dumps in the ingredients and stirs. I dump it in the baking dish, she levels it out and tops it with cheese. I like that it gives her confidence and makes her feel important. I think she will enjoy making this recipe from your post: Recipes Kids Like: Super Cheesy Rotini. It’s something I know she will like and its not far from what she does when we make our casserole. Im saving these recipes. I like our one on one time in the kitchen together.

  37. Tina says

    You have so many fun recipes for kids. I still have my Scholastic cooking books that my mom bought me in the 1st grade. Start teaching kids how to cook and take care of themselves when they are young and they won’t starve as adults 🙂

  38. tessa s says

    What great ideas! Now that I am a stay at home mommy I will have to try some of these out! My girls would love them! Thanks for this!

  39. Jennifer Ingram says

    All yummy and healthy! My 4year old will love getting to put these together and eating them! She also loves to help me make cornbread! 🙂

  40. Lisa Hackney says

    What wonderful recipes!! My kids are always asking to help out in the kitchen. It’s nice to have some ideas of things they can actually help with!!

  41. Julia says

    I love this page! My kids always love to help out in the kitchen especially my daughter and this is great to have recipes to have for times when they really can help out.

  42. Renee Wright says

    I love finding new recipes, and my boys are getting to the age where they want to help me cook. I love finding new ones that they will like and actually eat!

  43. Keely Hostetter says

    my kids love helping in the kitchen, especially when they make it look like a craft:) Thanks for the ideas

  44. Heather Kenville says

  46. Jody Arbogast says

    You really have some creative recipes. I would love to try some out for my 6 yr old son. he has food allergies, so it would be great. Thank you.

  47. Cheryl Rahkonen says

    I really like the Mother’s Day: Sweet Tulip Pop Treat. My 6 yr old grandson always wants to make or buy something for his momma for Mother’s Day.
    He would be so proud to make these and to give them to his momma. We could make them at any time because he thinks every day is Mother’s Day.
    I like the other recipes also. I have found that when the children are involved in the cooking they are more likely to eat healthy foods.

  48. amybelle2001 says

    The Holiday recipes look like a lot of fun and would be a great way to incorporate holiday treats with a learning opportunity. Thanks!

  49. Jeanette Jeno says

  50. Ashley Pate says

    These are great! Me and my kids LOVE being in the kitchen and making neat things…we will definitely do alot of these 😀 thanks so much for sharing

  51. amy says

    I would guess this would certainly encourage picky eaters to eat if they are a part of it.

    does with mine – a littl elol

  52. says

    I have always loved including my kids in cooking in the kitchen. Many schools don’t offer home ec anymore so if they are going to learn how to do it I might as well be their teacher.

  53. Michelle L. says

    I love the healthy recipes. I actually have some recipe books made for kids that my kids have used! They love helping out in the kitchen:)

  66. Mary Brock says

    I love cooking with my kids. I have 5 kids altogether and I don’t have to worry about my “grown” kids starving to death now that they are living on their own. It’s great for them to learn young so they can grow to enjoy cooking when they are older.

  73. Jessica Claypool says

    I especially love the healthy cooking with kids recipes. The No Sugar Recipe for Kids: Grandma’s Homemade Applesauce caught my eye. All natural and easy to make! Doesn’t get much better than that!

  74. elysia perkins says

    always looking for easy things to do with my kids (b/g 5 year olds and a 10 year old boy) this will help out!
