My 7 year old has recently discovered he wants to cook. And none of this simply put the rice in the pot, either. He’s gotten serious. Very serious. Just last night, he followed mom’s directions and put together stir-fry spaghetti squash and green beans with ginger and sesame seeds – with his own “secret ingredients.”
So this means I’m constantly on the hunt for looking for new recipes a kid can make. And it’s a great exercise too, as my Juniors recently expressed their desire to start doing more in the kitchen as well. Apparently having a meeting without food at all was not a good thing for 10 year olds!
So today, I’m sharing some free e-books to get you started on ideas for recipes kids can make in the kitchen. Whether you’re working on your Brownie Snacks badge or Junior Simple Meals, or simply looking for a treat for hungry Cadettes and Seniors, I hope you enjoy!
