MY VERSION OF THE “O” LIST

15 Cooking Gifts for KidsEach December, Oprah comes out with her annual “O” list: her gift-giving picks for the year, showcased in the glossy pages of her magazine. Well, here you’ll find the Mom’s Kitchen Handbook version of the “O” list, only in this case, it’s all about kids and cooking.

Spring boarding off of my “kids in the kitchen” series, these ideas are meant to inspire interest at the stove. Most items are priced under $20.

These playful rubber spatulas make baking just a touch more fun and part of the proceeds benefit the non-profit, Share Our Strength. A Win Win!

Stocking stuffer alert! Retro, stripey paper straws are biodegradable and oh so cute.

Nesting doll measuring cups will make pint-size bakers want to go elbow deep in flour.

These sweet spoons are ideal for “food stylists in training”….or just for scooping homemade ice cream into little mouths.

Tie one of these cuties around one of your cuties before things get messy. You’ll find loads of other affordable apron options on Etsy.

Everything is sized just right for small hands with this Playful Chefs Cooking Set, which includes a sturdy apron with slots for tiny tools.

Perhaps more of a family gift than a kid one, I’ve admired What I Eat for some time now (hint Mr. Mom’s Kitchen). Riveting and eye opening, this beautiful book showcases photos of what people around the world eat in a given day.

This mini donut pan means morning treats are baked, not fried, and sized for petite appetites. Put it to work on holiday mornings with Brown Butter Glazed Pumpkin Donuts.

Seek out a compelling cooking class for kids or teens, either offered by a local pro or a national outfit such as  Sur La Table. Enlist one of your child’s buddies to join in as a way to up the fun factor.

You’ll want to borrow these darling measuring spoons  from your kids the moment they’re unwrapped. They’re both beautiful and breakable, so best suited for older children.

What can I say? One of my personal favorites. Ratatouille is a perfect “family movie nite” pick.

FC-2These playful chopsticks are ideal for “sushi eaters in training” (or parents with questionable fine motor skills).

For the reader at home, this Junior Edition of Michael Pollan’s classic is worth wrapping up.

    Love cooking/baking with my boys! I don’t have any cooking gifts planned for the kids, but we are going to be baking up a storm for gifts to give!

      The best gift, I’m sure, is being with them in the kitchen…for you and them!

      Thanks Liz. Someone gave us a set of those cups a few years ago and we love them.
