WIN Kids CookBook Handstand Kids- Baking around the world- By Yvette Garfield

My kids love helping me bake pretty much anything, so they were more than happy to help me review Handstand Kids- Baking around the world- By Yvette Garfield, a wonderful all around delightful cookbook for kids.


Baking in pj’s! It’s all good!

The child friendly kit comes with cupcake baking cups, a kid friendly whisk and really fun easy recipes that any child would enjoy. We made the All American Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, which we handed out for holiday parties and friends. My oldest daughter read the directions while my middle daughter helped dumped all the ingredients in. It’s so important to have the kids help in the kitchen, they learn a lot and baking is a great fun experience to share with them at any age. Even my youngest who is three helped us out. These are my two girls rolling the cookies in sugar and setting on the pan.


Rolling in sugar!




There are four sections to this book including- All Kids love Cupcakes – How the Cookie Crumbles- It’s a Piece of Cake – Sweet Treats from across the Globe. This is by far the best part, I think it’s so important to get kids involved in tasting things you normally wouldn’t have at the table. Some of the recipe in this section are a must to try, South African Pumpkin Bread Pudding, Whoopie Pies , come on Whoppie pies? Who wouldn’t want to make that!

Each recipe is rated on a level from 1-4 , which makes it a breeze to pick out which recipe would be better suited for a younger child. Each level is represented by a cupcake at the top of the page, makes it cute. I love the pictures throughout the book, as well as how easy to read it is. Ingredients, directions and the list of tools needed for each recipe are clearly outlined for the kids to read through. We set up an assembly line, so they were more organized and this book really helped with that. Get’s the kids into it more if you give them full reign. Another great thing about this book is most if not all the recipe have some sort of alternative for different ingredients, or even ideas to make it more special. Illustrations again, perfect throughout the book – really ties it together nicely.

My kids enjoyed helping me but I enjoyed watching them be able to go through this book and make their own baked goods with only a little help from me. They were excited and extremely proud to make their own treats and share them with their friends. If you have a little helper and you want to have some fun with them, this Handstands Cookbook kit is for you. I highly recommend it, even if you have a youngster not able to read, they can enjoy this.
