Whether you're looking for preschoolers or pre-teens, there are great cooking gift ideas here for kids of all ages on your gift list.
This 19-piece set includes a measuring cup set, measuring spoons, a rolling pin, turner, two spatulas, a large spoon, a whisk and a covered storage container, all in child sizes. What's nice about this set is that it's the same quality kitchen tools an adult would use, just made for a child, so it really does facilitate cooking with kids.
Package it with Paula Deen's My First Cookbook (compare prices) for easy recipes the kids can get started on right away!
For the kid who's really serious about cooking, this set makes a great gift. It not only includes a fun apron, chef's hat and oven mitts, but it also includes real kitchen utensils and bakeware -- not toys. A few things this kit has that others don't: a mixing bowl, silicone spatula and cookie cutters.
Baking cookies, cupcakes or brownies can be the fun and educational activity you always wanted it to be with these kits. Each kit comes with a colorful 18 x 24" instructional treasure map to guide kids from step to step. Using pictures, puzzles, math and science games, the maps show kids how to bake. One side is for kids ages 4 to 9; the other is for kids ages 9 and up. Plus, the mixes are all made of natural, organic ingredients, so you can feel good about your kids eating these sweets.
