Cooking with kids is a great way to not only bond, but also to teach them valuable skills. From how to select ingredients, to making healthy eating choices, learning how to measure and more- there are a ton of benefits. My kids LOVE to help out with cooking in the kitchen. I got the chance to try out Kidstir, a monthly subscription box for free, and I couldn’t have been happier with it.
The first box was a “Sandwich” box which had some great ideas for wraps and sandwiches that can be made for lunches. The great thing about having your child help with making their sandwich is sometimes (I know, I know, not all the time) it can make them more open to trying something a little different.
Inside the box are the recipes as well as some utensils that are kid-friendly. This box had an orange sandwich spreader and a ‘puzzle’ cut out. There were also stickers that were for the sub shop sandwichs.
The recipes are easy to follow and the directions are very clear, which makes it easy for kids to follow.
My son isn’t a big fan of sandwiches but in helping me make the sandwich spread he was willing to try it. While he did say he liked it, he only took 3 bites (which isn’t totally unusual for a 3-year-old).
The Kidstir box got a thumbs up from both me and the kids. We can’t wait to do it again. Not only is it something I subscribe to but something that I’m considering giving as a gift for my nieces and nephew.
