Teach your kids the basics of healthy cooking with the help of this fun DIY kids’ cooking tools set!
Over the past year or so, I have been putting together a set of cooking tools for each of my kids so I can teach them how to cook. This way, they each have their own things, in their favorite color, and feel extra special! Well, after I got each cooking tool set put together, I posted a picture on Facebook. And quite a few people took interest in them, so I decided to put together this roundup of what products I used.
Most of the items I purchased via Amazon.com because we live in the country with access to very few stores. However, some things I got from Dollar Tree or Walmart and I’m sure you may be able to find some in other stores as well.
Some of you wondered just when my kids use these cooking tools. Well, I homeschool my kids so I am incorporating occasional cooking lessons here and there (such as knife skills), but mostly I just have them (usually one kid at a time to prevent fighting) help me when I cook. They love being able to help and they love using their very own cooking tools!
Each kit is color coded to kid. So my oldest, whose favorite color is green, has the green set. My middle, whose favorite color is blue, has the blue set. And my youngest, whose favorite color is pink, has the pink set. I keep all three sets (with the cooking tools in their designated bin) in the kitchen, always waiting and ready to be used.
Trim Healthy You
When I originally put together these kids’ cooking tools sets, there was no Trim Healthy You curriculum! But now there is!

Before I dive into the roundup, I wanted to let you know that some of the items I have in my pictures are no longer available. So I included some substitute suggestions. You of course are welcome to take or leave my suggestions–they’re just there to help you get started!
