10 Easy Dinners Kids Can Help Make
Kick-start your kids’ love of cooking with these simple but fun recipes they can help make, from healthy salads to fun pizzas.
While extra steps like rolling up ingredients can feel time-consuming to an adult, they’re a fun way for kids to use their hands. This recipe calls for leftover chicken or turkey, rolled up in tortillas with a little cheese and some spices.
Simply toss in a few ingredients and turn on the slow cooker! Teaching kids how easy cooking can be sets them up for successfully cooking for themselves (someday!).
Casseroles are great for getting kids involved with making dinner! They can stir together the ingredients, and help pour them into the baking dish. Sprinkling breadcrumbs or cheese over the top is fun for kids, too!
Tossing a salad using leftover chopped meats and assorted veggies and nuts is fun for kids. They can even customize the salad, adding extra ingredients they love. Plus, getting kids involved in cooking healthy foods makes them more likely to enjoy it.
The one time you want kids to stir the pot! Ask kids to help with simple prep work, or have them pull apart herbs or grate cheese for topping.
As an adult mans the grill, kids can assemble the cold ingredients.
Again, some assembly is welcome for kids. They can help fill noodles with meat or sprinkle sauce and cheese into a baking dish. Bonus? Have them smear a loaf of bread with butter and garlic salt and bake until toasty and delicious-smelling.
