Do you have a kid who loves helping in the kitchen? If you’re a regular reader here, you already know I talk about my son Isaac all the time and how he loves to cook. He’s 9 right now and when you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up, he’ll tell you a chef. He loves watching FoodNetwork with his dad and of course the competition shows are his favorite.
I already spend time teaching him basics in the kitchen, but this past Christmas I came across Kidstir, a subscription box for kiddos like Isaac who love to learn in the kitchen. I personally love my monthly subscription box to Sparkle, Hustle, Grow and I was looking for a fun subscription for boys (which isn’t super easy) when I found this one.

I stared Isaac with the December box, which was “Winter Wonderland” themed.
Because it was his first month he received his cookbook binder and the box that was full of fun items (ingredients are not included):
- Three cookie recipes cards for Snowball Truffles, Hot Cocoa Cookies, & Snowflake Shortbread
- A recipe card for Buttercream Frosting
- Instructions and tips card for rolling cookie dough
- Quick recipe card for Homemade Hot Cocoa
- Kitchen Craft card to make a Snow Globe
- Math Magic card “Let it Snow”
- A shopping checklist card
- A complete set of Holiday Gift Tags
- A set of cookie decorating tips and frosting bag
- A set of three star shaped cookie cutters
To say he was super excited to receive this gift is an understatement! He’s been wanting to try his hand at decorating cookies with the decorative tips and frosting bag.
Some friends visited us for New Years, and one of the eveningswe all jumped in the kitchen together for a mini cookie baking party using inspiration and supplies from his box.

Isaac is definitely looking forward to receiving his next box in the mail and getting busy in the kitchen.
