I must admit the phrase "cooking with kids" immediately makes me think of nothing but kitchen chaos. Flour in the hair, milk spilling off the counter, you get the picture. But if your child has expressed any interest in cooking or baking (and even if they haven't), the process of making a recipe together can be a fun activity to share with your child, even if there's a little messiness involved.
In the kids cooking subscription boxes I've chosen below, not only will you be creating a delicious meal or baking a yummy cookie, but perhaps you'll learn something about the country where your recipe originated, try a STEM activity or learn a new cooking technique. Preparing a yummy meal or baking with your child is not only a great bonding activity, but when your child helps you cook, they're also learning independence and teamwork. Kind of a no-brainer, right?
Each of these kids cooking subscription box companies offer one-off purchases or an option to sign up for multi-month subscriptions plans, if you end up wanting to try more than one. And who knows, maybe you'll be fostering the talents of a future culinary whiz!
