Kidstir is a really cute kids’ monthly cooking subscription box. You get a themed cooking kit sent to your door every month. Every box includes 3 recipes and some accessories for each – 2 kid-sized tools and a special extra. Your first box comes with a great recipe binder to store all the recipes in so you can revisit your favorites. My youngest is my kitchen helper and he is loving getting all these kid-size tools to use.
Even opening the box is fun and they give you a nice Happy Cooking! note.
First look in the box! The theme for October is Spooky Celebration which is very timely for an October box. We are a huge Halloween family so I couldn’t wait to see what was included.
The back of the information card lists a shopping list so that you can grab all the ingredients you need for each recipe.
You will always get 2 kid-sized tools and one special extra in every box!
Everything in my October KidStir box.
First recipe in the box was for some Witch’s Brew.
Each recipe comes with a list of ingredients and skills needed and some instructions on how to make it. I’m a huge cider fan so this is a perfect recipe for me and my family.
It also includes ideas on how else you can use your ice cube tray and some other drink and snack ideas.
The back of the recipe sheets tells the story of the Kitchen Witch. I’ve never heard of it but I’ll be printing some witches out to pass around as we make the Halloween Party rounds.
The second recipe is for yummy mummies zucchini cupcakes. My boys are not huge veggie eaters, so I love to mix them in where they aren’t expecting. I’m going to try these out and see how they do. We may skip the icing since neither of mine really like it but we have never made our own so maybe they will like it when they help to prepare it. That is usually a great go-to for me. If they help make it then they will at least try it. The extra for this recipe are some cute stickers that you can use to seal up Halloween goodies bags to hand out.
The final recipe is for scary-oli! We love pasta at my house. However, I’ve never really tried to make it with my boys. This will be a great way to get them involved and we could even mix up the fillings and try some new and fun things. Again, going with the “if we make it then they are more likely to try it” theory from above. They will also love making the silly faces on their plates. Playing with your food is always so fun.
This is another great KidStir box with fun Halloween-themed recipes. Since we are huge Halloween people here I can’t wait to dive in and give them a whirl. I love the extras this month and my boys already want to use the ice cube tray to make jello for them to eat. I’m most excited to make my own dumplings and trying out some new yummy fillings as a way to introduce new food to both kids and my husband. Shh, what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him! Have a happy and spooky Halloween everyone!
