This month’s theme is “Order’s Up!” This is all about creating your own little food shop, right in your kitchen! Fun!
The reverse side of the theme card has your shopping list, so you and your children have a list of everything you need right on hand when you go to the grocery store.
Aside from the recipes and activities, Raddish Kids always includes two bonus items that are key. One is a skill card, which teaches kids things about cooking that aren’t really described on recipes, like kneading and scraping. This month’s skill is Scooping, and although it has limited use, it’s a great one to know when it’s hot outside! This month Raddish Kids also sent us an ice cream scoop, which is wonderful because we actually did not have one.
They also include this little set of cards every month called “Table Talk.” It’s a great little set of questions for everyone at the table to answer. It usually spurs quite a bit of interesting conversation at our table! I think it’s a great touch!
This month’s activity is to set up and run a lemonade stand! I think it’s a wonderful inclusion, but unfortunately we just don’t have enough traffic in front of our house to make this work.
This month’s recipes are Chop Shop Salad, Snack Shack Sliders, and Ice Cream Parlor Sandwiches. I love that they are laminated! We definitely make a mess when we’re in the kitchen together!
This is a peek inside the recipe card so you can get an idea of how well they communicate the directions to the children. It is very graphics heavy, which I think is so important for younger kids trying to understand.
This is the reverse side of the recipe card (they are tri-fold). This month has loads of information about different substitutions you can make when preparing these recipes. I have a house full of picky eaters, so this was key information for us! I think we made adjustments on all three recipes this time!
One thing to notice about the recipe cards is that on the front, along the bottom, they list the skills that the little ones will be using in making the recipe. I think that’s especially helpful information if you have multiple little helpers and need to decide which recipes are better for older or younger kids. It also gives you a good idea of how much help will be required from you.
Here is our Chop Shop Salad. I finally got a knife into the hands of my seven-year-old! He was excited about that! Meats and cheeses are much easier for the little guys to start off with when they are practicing their cutting. This was super easy and delicious!
My nine-year-old son made these sliders All. By. Himself. I seriously almost cried. They were so yummy!
Here’s our Ice Cream Parlour Sandwiches! Mmmmm, ice cream smushed between warm chocolate chip cookies! My seven-year-old and I baked the cookies, and then I let my nine-year-old assemble them. It was messy but it was SO worth it.
Verdict: I think this was our favorite Raddish Kids so far! The food was delicious and everything was pretty easy to make. I am actually starting to trust my kids a lot more in the kitchen, especially when it comes to knives and heat safety. They are well on their way to making meals on their own!
