10 Best Gifts for Kids Who Like to Cook

Here’s my list of the 10 best gifts for Kids Who Like to Cook. I’ve included a variety of gifts and price ranges in this guide so that there’s something for everyone.

Some of my favorite memories from raising our girls were made around our kitchen table. Of course we gathered at the kitchen table for our family meals, but we also gathered there to work on craft projects and to roll out and decorate cookies.

Every Christmas we’d spend hours laughing — while usually making a huge mess — as we made batches of Ginger Cookies and decorated sugar cookies. Those were such fun times that I can’t wait until our little granddaughter is big enough to help me make a mess — I’m worse than the kids! — in the kitchen, too!


This is week four of our gift guides and giveaways—be sure to read to the end to see what we’re giving away this week! Then, be sure to check back each Monday through November 25 for another gift guide and another giveaway!
