What the Cooking Kit includes
- 3 recipe cards
- 1 science activity
- 1 budget cards to shop for ingredients
- an apron
- a collectible pin
- a kid sized kitchen tool
For the first kit, we received a kids sized pizza cutting tool, it’s no joke, it does cut it’s just in miniature form for little hands.
The recipe cards are easy to read for the kids and each of the ingredients are show with the text and a picture.
My daughter was most excited about the pizza so we decided to try that one first. She was very adamant that it had a face and she loved getting her hands dirty while making the dough.
This was also the perfect opportunity to discuss yeast and how they work to make the dough rise. Kitchen science was hard at work here on this day.
She’s not a huge fan of olives or mushrooms so we used tomatoes, peppers and pineapples which are her favorite.
She added a pineapple nose and beard just so she could have it on the pizza.
While she doesn’t normally eat peppers, she doesn’t like them, she did decide to give them a try at least with her pizza. She didn’t love them but at least she tried and that’s all I could ask.
The small size of the pizza was perfect for her to use her little cutting tool with and it worked perfectly.
This cooking kit made my daughter so excited to cook on her own. She was able to read her recipe cards and there were pictures on what to mix next, it was really easy for her to follow along.
We’re going to make the chocolate chip biscotti next.
