Is your Tillakid antsy to help in the kitchen? I know when I was growing up, all I wanted was to busy my hands helping mom and dad cook. Since my uncoordinated chubby-fingered days, a handful of kid-friendly cooking tools have hit the market. Here are 5 that caught our eye, and, to be blunt, are just smart!


Nylon knife
Don’t be fooled – while this plastic knife won’t cut your hand if you pick up the wrong end, it can accomplish a handful of kitchen tasks! From slicing bread, to cutting cheese, fruit and vegetables, this knife with a non-slip handle will prevent any trips to the emergency room.


Cheese grater
This multi-purpose tool does it all: grating, juicing, shredding, and pouring! The handle is easy for small hands to hold and the basin keeps your shreds contained and off your kitchen floor!


Apple slicer
Rumor has it, apples and cheddar were made for each other. Take the danger out of slicing apples with this safe tool. The handles are extra far away from the blades and have soft non-slip grips to help keep little hands steady while they slice.


Vegetable scrubber
This veggie scrubber is made for tiny chefs in training. Its small size and non-slip detailing make it easy to use.


Measuring cups, spoons + Non-slip mixing bowl
Color coded measuring cups and spoons are a great way to get kids involved and start teaching them simple kitchen math! The bowl used here is also kid friendly – its non-slip bottom helps keep it steady during mixing! In fact, I could use a bowl like this in my own kitchen!

What tools do your kids like to use when they’re working with you in the kitchen!?
