It’s no secret that kids love to be in the kitchen – usually while you’re trying to make dinner, prep for dinner, or clean up from dinner.
While your kids are showing an interest in the kitchen, why not arm them with their own kitchen tools and make them your sous chefs?
Kids love having independence and being able to master a task – especially tasks that seem more “grown-up” like cooking. Here are some items that will help!
Best Gifts for Kids Who Like to Cook
Cook Set for Kids
One of the best cooking gifts for kids is putting together your own version of a cooking set all in kid-sizes.
Things to consider including in this cooking set for the little chef in your life are:
Kid knives that are super safe for tiny fingers – they will easily cut through fruits and veggies, but won’t cut skin. This is a great tool to help your child work on fine motor skills, as well as include them in food preparation!
6-piece Fruit & Veggie Prep Set is great for little ones who love to help in the kitchen. These are real kitchen tools for kids (as opposed to toy tools). This set includes a vegetable scrubber, melon baller, a medium-sized nylon knife, apple slicer, large silicone spoon, and a vegetable peeler. As a bonus, it also comes with a sticker set and a shopping menu with a free recipe!
Measuring Spoons – These measuring spoons are made from durable BPA-free plastic with vibrant colors, no-drip edges, and soft bubble grips that your kids will love.
Ice Cream Maker
I don’t know many kids that don’t like ice cream. An ice cream maker isn’t a conventional gift for kids but it’s something that kids can use on their own (depending on age) or supervision and makes a treat they love.
This ice cream maker is great for kids! It only takes about 15-20 minutes to make ice cream or frozen yogurt.
It makes a great gift!
Personalized Kids Star Baker Set
This item is a little pricier due to the shipping costs from the UK, but it’s entirely worth it in my opinion.
Treat your tiny chef to this beautifully handcrafted set of personalized cooking tools along with a personalized cotton drawstring bag.
The kids baking supplies set includes a rolling pin, spatula, pastry brush, spoon, and cutting board – all of which are personalized with your child’s name (besides the pastry brush).
Kids Cooking Course
When I was a preschooler, my parents had me take a cooking class. I remember how much I loved cooking and using all the different real cooking tools.
Why not gift a child a fun cooking course?
Kids Cook Real Food has some amazing classes that I love.
Some of the courses they offer for kids include:
Knife Skills Class (would be a perfect companion to a set of kid knives)
Kids Cook Real Food eCourse
Snack Kids Can Make (Free)
Healthy Breakfasts Kids Can Make Mini eCourse
Kids Instant Pot & Slow Cooker Meals eCourse
Blank Recipe Book
A blank recipe book is perfect for any boy or girl who loves cooking! It also makes the perfect cooking gift for teenagers.
This wooden blank recipe book/binder is awesome! Truly, a recipe book that will last for years.
I know my kids like to know how to make their favorite dishes. There are several that are their Dad’s specialties, just like there are several that are mine.
Having a special place to write down their own recipes to keep and make is important to them and this blank recipe book is the perfect place to record them. This is a great recipe journal as well, with a spot to write their own notes about the recipe.
Toddler Learning Tower
This beautiful learning tower is handmade to order and comes in a variety of stains and finishes to ensure that it will look great in your kitchen.
A learning tower is a fantastic way to allow your children to safely stand in the kitchen and help you at the counter!
This learning tower is here.
Cooking Class: 57 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Make and Eat!
This cookbook is a great way to get kids extra interested in cooking – and all the recipes are aimed at ages 6 through 12.
The book starts by discussing techniques and tools for the kitchen, and then moves on to fun recipes such as french toast, pizza, and more!
Personalized Kids Chef Hat and Apron
A kid who loves being in the kitchen would love to have their own kid’s chef apron and matching chef hat.
The kid’s apron has their name embroidered on it, while the chef hat matches the apron color.
Kids Cooking Subscription Box
A kid’s cooking subscription box is the perfect gift that keeps on giving.
Here are some of the best kids cooking subscription boxes out there right now, plus a little about each one.
Raddish Kids Cooking Box – Each month a new box is sent out with a “theme”. The themes are really cool from “edible experiments” to “Ticket to Japan”. The items in the box include step-by-step recipe guides (3 in each box), 3 culinary skills lessons, 1 creative kitchen project such as a science experiment with food (making a solar oven), dinner conversation starters, an apron patch, collectible kitchen tools, and a grocery list.
Harlows Harvest – Each month you’ll receive a box filled with collectible apron pin, kitchen tool for kids, 3 recipes, monthly science experiment, and a grocery list.
Kids Baking Subscription Box
A baking subscription box is very similar to the cooking subscription boxes, except it is for baking.
Here are some fun child baking set subscriptions for kids.
Foodstirs – Includes organic mixes, decorations free from chemicals, plus kid-friendly instructions and supplies needed.
Help kids develop independence in the kitchen with these tools – and give yourself a break! Hey, maybe they can even cook *you* a meal for once!
