A Collection of Recipes to Make with Kids

Published on November 2, 2022

Inviting kids into the kitchen can be an intentional way to pass down traditions, swap stories, and maybe learn a thing or two about each other in the process. At the end of the day, the mess can take on a new form: consider the flour scattering the counter and dirty dishes brimming the sink remnants of well-spent time together—and sweet memories to savor.

Without further ado, here are a few delicious, yet simple recipes from Jo and our friends from Magnolia Network to kick off baking with the help of little hands.

Here’s to memories in the making!
