                                Easy Kid Recipes
Cooking Basics
Clean, Clean, Clean

• Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before cooking.
• Keep a dishcloth handy to wipe any spills as you go along.
• Cooking is lots of fun, but remember to clean up after yourself too… this will make
mom happy and she’ll be more likely to let you keep cooking! ☺
• Put away all the food once you’ve finished, wash all utensils and plates (or load the
dishwasher), and wipe the counter tops with a clean cloth.

Cutting with a knife

• Make sure to ask for permission or get an adult’s help before cutting with a knife.
• Be careful to cut with the blade of the knife pointing away from you and keep your
fingers clear of the blade.
• Pay very close attention when cutting anything. Don’t look away or talk while cutting.
• Always use a cutting board instead of the worktop or plate. Never cut anything while it’s
in your hand.

Safety First

• Always remove the lid from pans carefully as the hot steam can burn.
• Keep all pan handles turned to the side instead of over the front of the stove. Make
sure they’re out of the way of the heat and where people can accidentally knock them
over.
• Never ever use electrical appliances like the toaster or blender near water. Always
make sure your hands are dry before plugging anything into a socket.
• Always unplug the appliance right after using and don’t ever stick your hands or kitchen
utensil into a toaster, blender or any other appliance.
• Always use oven mitts before removing anything from the stove or oven. If a pan is too
heavy ask an adult to help.
• Be careful not to let the oven mitts come close to the stove top as they can catch on
fire.

Cooking Tips

• Set a timer to remind you when your food is ready.
• When using a measuring cup, always place the measuring cup on a flat surface (like
the countertop) to make sure you get the right measurement.
• When measuring dry ingredients make sure you level off the top with a spatula so that
it’s even with the rim.
• Don’t keep opening the oven to check on your goodies… this will let the heat escape
and your food will take even longer to cook.
• Always read the recipe and have all your utensils and ingredients ready before starting.

Hobo Picnic
Ingredients:

4 cn Tuna (3 oz each)
4 cn Baked beans (6 oz each)
4 Oranges
4 Plastic forks
4 Bandana cloths
4 Children

How To Make It:

Place 1 can tuna, 1 can beans, 1 orange, and 1 fork on each
bandana. Bring up corners and tie securely. Tie end to
children's belt loop or attach to a stick and send them off on
their hobo hike. Pack another hobo pouch for yourself and
go along. Make sure someone has a Scout knife with a can
opener attachment to open cans (much more fun struggling
with one of these things than to take a conventional can
opener).

The oranges serve as both a drink and a dessert. Poke a
hole in one end and after all the juice has been sucked out,
open it and eat the flesh. The tuna and beans, of course, are
eaten just as they come from the can. The bandanas serve
as little tablecloths, napkins, and kerchiefs to be worn back
home. Children love this hobo picnic--it's easy for you,
nutritious, filling, and fun from them.

Rock Candy
Ingredients:

2 c granulated sugar
Heavy cord
1 c water

How To Make It:

Put one cup of water into a small saucepan, pour 2 cups of
granulated sugar into the water, heat the water and sugar on
the stove over a medium heat, continue stirring until the
sugar melts, keep adding sugar and stirring until it melts,
stop adding sugar when you see that it will no longer
dissolve in the water (that is until you see sugar lying on the
bottom of the saucepan).

Remove the pot from the stove, let the liquid cool until it is
just warm. Pour the liquid into a clean glass jar. Tie one end
of a piece of heavy cord around the middle of a pencil. Place
the pencil over the top of the glass jar letting the cord fall into
the liquid. Crystals will begin to form in a few hours. The next
day, remove the cord from the jar, pour the sugar liquid back
into the saucepan, reheat and cool it just as you did before.
Pour the liquid back into the jar and reinsert the cord with the
crystals into it. More crystals will form. If you repeat this
procedure every day the crystal candy will grow bigger and
bigger. When it has reached a size that pleases you, snip off
any excess string and enjoy.

4 c Popped corn
1 c Peanuts
½ c Molasses
¼ c Sugar

How To Make It:

A candy thermometer is handy to have for this recipe to test
the temperature of the syrup that binds the popcorn and nuts
together. Mix popcorn and peanuts together in a large bowl
or pan. Cook molasses and sugar together until the mixture

thermometer. If you don't have a thermometer, test the syrup
by letting some drop from a spoon into a cup of cold water.

water. Pour hot syrup mixture over the popcorn nut mixture
and stir to coat evenly. Cool and break into chunks with a
wooden spoon. Stored in an airtight container, mixture will
keep well for 4 to 6 weeks.

Easter Mints for Kids
Ingredients:
1
 /3 c Soft butter
1
 /3 c Light corn syrup
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp flavoring of choice
3 ½ c (1 lb ) sifted confectioner's sugar
Large bowl
Wooden spoon
Paper plates
How To Make It:
This is a no-cook recipe the children can mix with their hands. Flavor
it with any of the liquid flavorings in the supermarket, such as
strawberry and lemon. If you want, you can instead divide it into three
portions and add a few drops of food coloring to tint it yellow, red, and
green. Then knead a small amount of flavoring into each one. This
recipe makes about 1 ½ lbs of candy. Help the children measure all
the ingredients into the large bowl. They can take turns stirring it with
the wooden spoon until it becomes too stiff. Then they can knead it
with their hands. They should continue kneading until the dough is
smooth.
Give each child a portion of dough on his or her plate. The children
can pinch off pieces, roll them into balls, and press them lightly with a
fork to make a fancy butter mint. Children who cannot roll the candy
into balls can make snakes, cut the snakes into pieces, and press the
pieces with a fork. They might eat the pieces with the fork, but that's
ok too. Leave the mints on the plates and refrigerate them for 30
minutes, until they become firm. Easter Mints taste even better the
second day, if you can keep everyone from eating them all on the first
day. Cover with plastic wrap and keep them in the refrigerator.
