Creative Holiday Cooking Gifts for Kids — The Product Puree

Creative Holiday Cooking Gifts for Kids

Coming up with creative holiday gifts for kids can be a real challenge, but to my surprise, several kids I know have been asking their parents for cooking equipment this year. Why not? Half of the tools in my kitchen are better than toys in some respects. Just this morning my son turned my trussing string into rope for his crane to lift my favorite whisk.

If you're looking for an out-of-the-box idea that will keep kids excited about and engaged in cooking, here are a few things I'll be giving this year:

  • Let your nut-free child walk around feelin' cool with these kickin' tattoos.
  • What's more fun than letting your child pick their own popsicle flavors and turn them into these rocket pop shapes.
  • For the budding baker in your home ,this baking kit will be a hit.
  • I've seen even the pickiest of eaters decide they'll try a new food when eating with these chopsticks for boys and girls.

My godson has been asking for an ice cream maker for years. I think this is the year. He can come up with array of flavors throughout the seasons — that will be an endless treat!
