7 Fun Recipes Kids Can Make Over Spring Break

Hand CookiesIt’s one thing to spend spring break in a tropical locale, cocktail in hand. But it’s a whole other thing to spend the week holed up at home with the kids — and nothing to do. Consult this list of easy, tasty recipes when you’ve hit a lull … or, you know, when everyone gets hungry.


Hand Cookies (above)


In a way, cooking is always about self-expression, but kids will likely get more excited by this literal interpretation: their hands starring as cookies, decorated with all the icing and sprinkles they want.


Banana PopsChocolate-Covered Banana Pops


Dipping frozen bananas in chocolate and peanuts couldn’t be easier for kids to do. Plus, as Ellie Krieger shows us, a little goes a long way, so this recipe is healthy, too.


Pizza Skewers


Sure, you could have everyone top his or her own pizza for dinner. But having kids skewer the ingredients (even little squares of dough!) is way more novel.


Fruit PopsFruit Pops


No matter if it’s still frigid in your neck of the woods — Ree Drummond’s stripy pops come together with frozen berries, so you can bypass the subpar fruit that’s likely still in your produce aisle right now.


Zucchini BoatsZucchini and Corn Pirate Boats


Call a zucchini a pirate ship and have kids give it a tomato-skewered mast, and dinner is no longer just a pile of vegetables — it’s an adventure.


Puffed Rice Snowballs


A healthier version of cereal treats, these little guys have apricots, flax seeds and sunflower seeds — and little hands can easily mix and shape them into balls.


Stuffed PopoversSalad-Stuffed Popovers


This kid-friendly twist on panzanella offers a cooking job for everyone: Big kids can measure and chop the ingredients, and little kids can stir them and help fill the popovers when they’re done baking.
