Taking your kids on a trip around the world has never been easier. Join us on our journey as we have fun cooking and doing activities from around the globe. These activities are easy, fun, and a great way to connect with your kids. Today’s trip takes us to Paris!

Our Parisian adventure begins with breakfast. We head to the kitchen to whip up some crepes. I enlist my sous chefs to help me whip up the batter and fillings.

kids cooking

Pro-tip – Kids as young as two can start helping in the kitchen. Scooping, mixing and pouring are great activities for younger kids. Around five or six they can begin measuring and cutting with safety knives.

These safety knives from Amazon are perfect for kids. 

Cooking with kids is a great way to bond with your kids while getting them involved with helping out more around the house.

When you’re making your crepes you can probably get by with using a nonstick skillet, but having a real crepe pan definitely makes it easier. If you’re in the market for a good crepe pan, you can buy this Nordic Ware crepe pan on Amazon.
