One of my New Year's Resolutions is to make a meal plan every week and cook more consistently for my family! I thought one way I could be motivated to do that was by dedicating a blog post every week towards that goal.
Each week I am going to aim to share with you a kid in the kitchen tip and/or a kid friendly recipe. My first tip for getting a toddler involved in the kitchen is by collecting toddler safe kitchen tools. Below is a list of kitchen tools that I have purchased for my toddler. Please note, I still have several kid friendly kitchen items on my wish list. 🙂 Most of these tools were found at the Goodwill, on the Facebook group called - Montessori Materials for Sale, Target, Amazon, IKEA, and more stores.
Montessori Kitchen Tools
- Small cheese grater (Or for carrots if you don't eat cheese)
- Banana slicer
- Small kid sized spatulas
- Butter knife
- Plastic knife
- Small kid sized juicer
- Vegetable Peeler
- Small kid sized wooden spoon
- Baster for transfer activities
- Small kid sized containers for pouring
- Different sized tongs
Please visit the following blog posts to see how we use these Montessori Kid Kitchen Tools in our home:
This week I would like to highlight some wonderful Kids in the Kitchen Pinterest boards from several of my favorite Montessori bloggers.
