Fun Child-Friendly Recipes and Cooking Activities

We’ll all undoubtedly be spending a lot more time at home over the next few weeks. That’s why we’re starting to bring together all our favourite cooking activities and put them in free handy activity cards. Each one contains a detailed step-by-step guide on how to create each recipe, along with useful learning links, so you can make cooking fun and educational.

Most of these recipes use basic ingredients and only require basic kitchen equipment. Almost all recipes take less than 30 minutes and are suitable for all age groups, so the whole family can get involved! So if you’re looking for fun, child-friendly recipes, then look no further 🙂

Don’t forget that we also have lots of tasty recipes over on our YouTube channel!
