Done-for-you Kit To Make Cooking With Kids a BLAST! 

Great babysitter activity for kids, too!

I don’t know about you, but my kids are always begging to help out with dinner. And while part of me loves how interested they are in the kitchen, the other part of me sees nothing but dirty floors and countertops. Well, with our Cooking With Kids Kit, you can make the process fun, exciting, and educational for everyone! Getting the kids cooking is good on SO many levels… it teaches them patience, hard work, measurements and math! Use this kit to make cooking with kids a memory to last a lifetime.

Cooking With Kids Bonus Idea

Our Cooking With Kids Adventure Kit is also a great idea for when babysitters come over! The most difficult part about making date night happen is leaving the kids with a babysitter. Sometimes it takes me a few hours just to get ready for the babysitter to come. Enough of that! The kit includes tons of pre-prepared babysitter activities for kids to leave behind while you two take some time for yourselves. The kids will be so excited to find out what’s in the bag that they won’t even notice you‘re gone, and you can completely enjoy date night! And I almost forgot the best part, with The Babysitter Activities for Kids: Cooking Edition you don’t have to cook dinner! That’s all part of the fun. Nice, huh?!
