Easy Recipes for  Kids to Cook

Here are a few of my go-to recipes for kids to cook (with a little help!) when you’re in need of fun toddler activities!

The kids can help stir the batter and scoop out the batter. It’s easy and fun to snack on raisins as you go.

Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

This is one of our favorite cookies to make for the holidays, though you can make them for any holiday you like— just change the cookie cutter accordingly.

Cut-Out Cookies

Adding a little cocoa powder to this batter yields subtly flavored cookies that are still easy to make.

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Technically, this isn’t cooking, but letting the kids assemble their own snack mix is a fun activity to do together.

Master Trail Mix Recipe

Work together to wash and cut fruit, then push onto paper lollipop sticks to turn them into fruit wands for snack time.

Rainbow Fruit Wands

Think s’mores without the open fire for the flavor of these no-bake cookies!

Graham Cracker Peanut Butter Balls

Let the kids practice chopping veggies (find my best kids cooking tools at the link below) to assemble their own snack plate dinner.

Snack Dinners

Let each kiddo spread hummus on a pita, then top with their desired toppings. We like feta, cucumber and tomato!

Greek Pita Pizzas

Let the kids pick their fillings and toppings to make this a fun snacktivity. The possibilities are endless!

Yogurt Parfaits

Have the kids help stretch out the dough and add the toppings to make these fun roll-ups that the entire family will enjoy.

Start small with single steps of a recipe or break things up as needed. Allow extra time and expect a mess that will need to be cleaned up.
