KidStir is a monthly children’s cooking subscription that focuses on simple, healthy meals. I think it’s so important to get kids in the kitchen early in life and teach them to cook. Especially boys!

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This month’s kit is all about breakfast! My favorite meal of the day!

Kid Stir has a great website that lists out exactly what we should expect to receive each month. Those items are:

* Three step-by-step recipes covering all food groups
* Three educational foodie pages
* Two kid-sized tools and one special extra
* Digital and printed shopping list
* Three fun games and activities
* Digital recipes, downloadables and videos

That seems like a lot for $24 a month!

This is the handy shopping list that was included.

kidstir-may-recipes

Kid Stir did indeed include three recipes: strawberry sundaes, egg-cellent cupcakes, and sunny scones. Those all sound so good! For the purposes of this review, we chose to make the sundaes and the cupcakes. The “foodie pages” are included on the back of each recipe and mainly contain fun facts and little activities that help make the children more aware of where their food comes from. I like that!

kidstir-may-recipe-inside

Here’s a peek inside the recipe pages. The directions were very clear, and the pictures were helpful. I go through this box with my eight- and ten-year-old, and reading these directions are not a problem for either of them.

kidstir-may-tools

Our kid-sized tools this month were a set of silicone muffin liners and a set of measuring cups. These are both tools we can keep using forever!

kidstir-may-menu

Our special item this month was a pair of these door hanger menus. I know they are for breakfast in bed, but I didn’t think the kids were quite ready for that yet. Now that we have gone through the recipes together, I might use these next weekend!

kidstir-may-muffins

Here are our completed egg-cellent cupcakes! These were basically little mini quiches with ham and spinach. They tasted great! The recipe also had suggestions for changing up the filling by using bacon or mushrooms or another meat and vegetable pair.

kidstir-may-sundaes

These little yogurt sundaes were also completely delicious! I don’t think I’ve ever had real, homemade strawberry sauce before. We don’t ever have these granola-yogurt-fruit dishes at my house for breakfast, but I think the kids are getting into it now. Yum!

Verdict: This was another successful month for KidStir in my house! The food the kids made was delicious and no problem for them to prepare. My ten-year-old is still a little wary of the oven, but he’s doing fine, and a healthy fear of the oven is a good thing. I am so impressed by what they are able to make in the kitchen already! They are adding new recipes to their binder every month!

What do you think of KidStir?

Fun cooking kits, mailed right to your door each month. Explore, cook, and have fun together as a family!

I think it’s wrongly categorized under “Subscription Boxes Giveaway,” FYI.
