6 Fun Recipes to Cook With Your Children in the Kitchen

easter egg cakes

With everyone at home for the foreseeable future, why not make the most of this quality family time and make some recipes together? Not only is this great fun and something that will bring you closer as a family, but it will boost your children’s confidence and hopefully aid them in becoming top-notch chefs when they grow up!

Cooking together can encourage our little ones to try something new, especially if they have helped to make it, so why don’t you give these 6 fun recipes a try?

Fun recipes for dinner

1. Spaghetti & meatballs with hidden veg sauce

Delicious, meaty and packed with nutrients too, this dish will soon become a favourite among your family. What we love about this recipe is that you’re likely to have about 95% of the ingredients already in your cupboard too!

See the ingredients and recipe here.

2. Fajitas

We chose this recipe to add to our list because it’s so fun to eat as a family! Cook the chicken, cut up the veg, throw it all in a pan and you’re pretty much done. The result is mouthwatering and full of flavour, not to mention that it’s so much fun for the kids to wrap up their food and eat with their hands for a change.

3. French bread pizzas

Kids love making pizzas because it’s so hands-on and they can customise theirs however they want. This means no complaints and everybody’s happy! Imagine that? The only warning with this recipe is that it will soon become a household favourite.

For dessert…

1. Classic fairy cakes

Easy to make, fun to decorate, and your children will make lasting memories – what’s not to love? Fairy cakes are a tradition, something that can be passed down through generations, so get creative. Help your children create their own brand and you’ll see that they’ll pass it on to their own children.

2. Chocolate Easter egg nest cakes

As it’s almost Easter, we had to include the classic chocolate egg nest cakes in our fun recipes list! They are yummy, they are fun to make (and eat), and they can get real messy. Just remember to let everyone lick some of the melted chocolate from the bowl as that’s the best part!

Just for fun…

1. Prickly hedgehog rolls

Last but not least is the prickly (but tasty) hedgehog rolls. How cute are these? What’s great about this recipe is that it teaches your children how to make their own bread. That’s a very useful skill to have but at the same time, so much fun as they are making their own hedgehogs!
