Why We Like It:  Kidstir is a monthly cooking subscription box for kids that teaches your child age-appropriate cooking techniques while they build their own cookbook. The company was founded by moms to help kids learn their way around the kitchen, which can spark a lifelong love of food and good eating habits.

Cooking is almost a lost art, but it’s such a valuable life skill to have! You’re empowering your kids to make healthy food choices and not rely on eating out. This is a skill that will serve them into adulthood.

In each Kidstir box you get kid-friendly step-by-step recipes, educational food pages, kid-sized cooking tools, shopping lists, and food themed games and puzzles.

Even if you’re not a great cook yourself, you can totally pull this off. The instructions are really easy to follow. You might even pick up some new cooking skills along with your child.

It’s a really fun way to spend some quality time with the kids.



What You Should Know:  Kidstir is recommended for boys and girls between 5-10 years old, but younger and older kids can use the items as well. Preschool-aged kids would need more help from an adult, while older kids could likely follow the instructions all by themselves.

You get a themed cooking kit sent to your door every month. Every box includes 3 recipes and accessories inspired by seasonal ingredients. If you sign up for the 12 month plan, then your first box comes with a great recipe binder (shipped separately) to store all the recipes in so you can revisit your favorites.

Each Kidstir Cooking Kit includes:

  • 3 step-by-step recipes that are simple and easy for children and grown-ups
  • 2 kid-sized cooking tools that get children involved in hand-on fun
  • 1 special extra item, like stickers, gift tags, door hangers, food decorating templates, name cards, conversation cards, or a puzzle book
  • 3 foodie education pages about all aspects of food, including culture, vocabulary, science, math and more
  • 3 fun and learning-filled games and activities
  • 1 fresh food shopping list that is enclosed in the kit and emailed ahead of time
  • Plus, a weekly e-newsletter packed with more digital recipes, tips and tricks, and handy printable

Some of our best memories are of time spent in the kitchen learning how to cook with mom. Now you can make those kind of memories with your own kids!
