Kids in the Christmas kitchen

Make festive memories by creating Christmas magic in the kitchen with the kids. Some of the treats make great gifts, too. A few of these Christmas recipes for kids only require assembling a few premade elements, others require some beating, then there are baking recipes for kids. Which projects you tackle with them will depend on their ages, what kitchen tasks you’ve tackled together in the past, and how much time you have to supervise.

When cooking with kids, always be sure tiny fingers are clear of sharp knives and hot ovens. Kitchen mishaps aren’t the sort of surprises we like around Christmas.
