Kids will spill, splash, and drop things – it’s inevitable when cooking with kids. Be prepared for your kitchen to end up looking a bit worse for wear: cover surfaces and move any shiny new appliances out of the way. Pop your kids into aprons and you’re ready to begin!

Children of different ages will be able to do different tasks. Older children can help with chopping ingredients while you supervise them and younger kids can try simpler tasks, like rolling or mashing ingredients with their hands. Always keep hot appliances out of the reach of little ones. 

Children have short attentions spans, so straightforward, easy-to-follow recipes are best when cooking with kids. Give them simple, quick tasks to do and they’ll have fun doing each and every one! If stains happen in the process, don’t worry – you can check out OMO’s stain removal section for handy advice.
