KidStir Kits – For the Love of Cooking!

Kidstir Kits via mindfulmomma@yahoo.com

When it comes to instilling values in our kids and teaching them necessary life skills, cooking ranks up there as one of the most important for our family. We desperately hope that by watching us cook (and shop, and prep, and do dishes) every day that some of that passion for cooking will sink in. We want them to realize that living the good life essentially revolves around cooking and eating with the people you love. We sure think it does!

Kidstir – Monthly Cooking Kits

There’s really no telling if your kid will grow up to be a health nut foodie or a junk food junkie – but you can try your best to influence them along the way. Subscribing to a monthly kid-centric cooking box is one way to do that. When a Kidstir box arrives at your house, your child will have fun, new recipes to try, along with cool kid-sized tools and special ingredients to inspire them to get cooking.

What child wouldn’t want to make strawberry sundaes, egg-cellent cupcakes or sunny scones for breakfast? Especially when you’ve got colorful, silicone cupcake holders and mini strawberry jams to use. The kit we received even included a grow-your-own strawberry kit, plus every kit comes with games and trivia to keep your child entertained even after the cooking is done.

Your first box will include a cookbook binder like the one you see above, so your child can save all of their recipes in one place.  After that, every month is a surprise! Want to try Kidstir? New subscribers can use code WELCOME25 for a 25% discount off your first purchase.

What do you do to inspire your kids to love to cook?

Make a Fruit Crisp With Your Favorite Fruit

Easy Fruit Crisp via mindfulmomma.com

  Are you ready for fruit crisp season? I wasn't until a couple of days ago when I had a basket of apricots and some garden grown rhubarb that I need to use. I knew I didn't have a recipe for that exact combination and I wasn't sure if you could swap out fruits in a recipe or if that was a recipe for disaster. Maybe you want to … [Continue reading]

Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday. Will you be relaxing and indulging or taking care of others? A bit of both, I would imagine.

The laundry, the dishes - they don't just magically go away on Mother's Day. I do my … [Continue reading]
