Recipes for Kids

Spending time cooking with the kids has become one our favorite traditions at home! Who’s with me?! Charlie took a cooking class at school recently, and he has been hooked on cooking ever since! His love for cooking has turned in to such a fun way for us to create even more memories…and to make a few more messes! ;) Since then, I have been on the hunt for easy recipes that would make for perfect meals or snacks for the kids to help with! That way it isn’t too hard for Charlie to help me in the kitchen and the kids get to eat something fun when we’re all finished! For some meals, we even let Claire help with some of the simpler tasks, but it will only be a matter of years before she’s right in the action with us. Here are some easy recipes I found to inspire you to get cooking.
