Kitchen Play: Kids Draw and Cook

By OneHungryMama |

kids draw and cookNow here’s a new way to have kids help in the kitchen!

Sometimes it’s just not practical to have kids chopping and stiring. Genius site Kids Draw and Cook has a solution: have the kiddos draw your recipe! It gives them something to do in the kitchen without getting in your way, provides great opportunities to identify and talk about ingredients, and is just plain funny.

Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself. The illustrations are priceless. Some serious, others whimsical, all of them hysterical.

The site, a side project by the folks who started They Draw and Cook, accepts illustrations by anyone 16 or under. So get cooking… and drawing!
