Homeschool Village ~ Favorite Children’s Recipes

Homeschool Village

This week’s topic at The Homeschool Village is sharing our children’s favorite recipes. I’m generally a little hesitant to have the kids help with cooking because our kitchen space is relatively small and with 5 of us in the kitchen…it starts getting crazy ~ fast!

Our kids DO like to help out whenever possible and I’ve been trying to let the girls help out more often, but really it all comes down to having fun with them. Over at the Totally Tots blog I started writing a post in January called Little Books for Little Cooks. We focus on a book and then make something edible to go along with the story. Sometimes there is actual cooking involved, but there is always eating involved!

Here are a few of our favorites from Little Books for Little Cooks {all have been kid tested in our home and happily eaten}:

Peanut Butter Honey Bee Balls

Mini Flower Quiches

Strawberry Mice

Cupid’s Hearts


Snowmen on a Stick


Other than edible items, we do have fun making playdough together. I have a recipe for Pumpkin Spice playdough that will leave your house smelling yummy for days and a Koolaid playdough recipe that is not only yummy smelling, it’s pretty to look at!

Do you have a favorite cookbook that you like to use with your kids? Any secret tips to share? I’m eyeing the Curious Chef knife set to use with our kiddos, since our real knives are just WAY too sharp for even me! Do any of you have them and can you recommend them?

Don’t forget to visit Homeschool Village and see what other moms are sharing about this topic! The weekly meme posts on Thursday {I’m early this week} but you still have time to pull together your own post for tomorrow to link up!!
