Fall isn’t complete without getting our fill of mouthwatering pumpkin treats. I was inspired with our Pumpkin Bread recipe and decided to use the recipe to make some muffins. These deliciously moist pumpkin muffins is so easy to make and our family loves it for breakfast and snack.

These Cooking With Kids recipes require handling hot items so (regardless of age) the child needs to be steady on their feet and have good motor skills. Play games to test your child’s motor skills in a fun way. Try relay races with a potatoe on a spoon, a full glass, full dish of colored liquid and last but certainly not least have the child try to do the same tests aka games wihile using a potholder- pretending they can’t touch the item because it is hot. If you do not have more than one child to race, time him or her and have them try again ‘racing’ their first time. The racing aspect allows you to put a bit of ‘pressure’ on the child to see how they would react and move when trying to get the actual hot item to a safe place.
Breakfast: Egg in a Mug
Snack: Jello Gummy candy
Vegetables/ Fruit: Potatoe, Corn on the cob and or apple in a Tater Baker bag
NOTE: At this stage of Cooking With Kids, no recipe is needed to heat up leftovers or fix very simple warm sandwiches (such as peanut butter or cheese). Microwave vegetable steamers, steamer bags , microwave popcorn bags, and microwave popcorn poppers are all available items that are recommended during this cooking with kids recipe level.
Have potholders ready for children to use. Finger mitts are a less bulky way for children to get a good grip on a hot item. They are easy to make and can be adapted to you or your child’s hands.
Some parents are concerned about the use of microwave technology (around children, with specified containers and or the affect on food.) Please research these issues and make an educated decision. As an alternative, there are also toasters available that cook only the length of the set timer. If you use the toaster please be sure to specifically check the above Cooking With Kids recipes recommended containers. Cooking with Kids- How to 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are available for review.
