Pinterest is amazing, right?! So many recipes to choose from and things to try. That being said, I love having a regular cookbook and so do the kids. We have a few different kids cookbooks that they love looking through to choose recipes. Today when the neighbor girl came over, the girls decided we needed to pick out a recipe and bake something delicious. Today I want to share some of my kids’ favorite cookbooks and we hope your family enjoys the recipes as well.

Cookbooks for KidsPictures are taken from the Creative Kids Yum!-Schooling cookbook and the chocolate chip cookies recipes. This cookbook is full of desserts that my kids love baking. I was very hands-off today and let the girls do this with very minimal input from me. They love following this because everything is clearly labeled. First it shows with pictures the ingredients needed; the tools needed and then step by step instructions of what to do. At the end of the recipe, it has a checklist and a spot to draw a picture of their recipe or the process. It has some questions and answers about each recipe and then different activities throughout the book.Cookbooks for Kids
