Cooking with your kids is a great way to bond as a family and have fun at home, but if your little ones are younger, you might be (understandably!) too worried about their safety in the kitchen to really enjoy the process. Outfitting your kitchen with some cooking utensils geared towards children—and made with their smaller hands in mind—is a smart idea to make it easier and safer for them to participate. And in the case of these kitchen tools, it makes things more fun for them, too—without looking like an eyesore in your kitchen, either.

From kid-friendly knives and miniature whisks to rainbow ingredient bowls and the cutest sprinkle-print oven mitt you’ll ever see, these are some of the best kitchen utensils and necessities for kids that adults are sure to appreciate, too. Baking with your loved ones (of all ages!) just got so much better.

Additionally, due to the pandemic, millions of American families face unemployment and increased food insecurity, including as many as one in four children. In partnership with Feeding America, House Beautiful and Hearst Magazines are committed to putting an end to hunger. To help food banks feed families in need, please donate at feedingamerica.org.
