If there’s one bright spot of being quarantined with my family, it’s all the memories we’ve created. In the midst of all the chaos and uncertainty, we’ve made fun a priority. It’s important for me that when my kids look back on this, they only remember the fun times. Hopefully they’ll remember the backyard camp outs, movies under the stars, and baking. Lots and lots of baking! Our kitchen adventures have been so enjoyable, that we’ve compiled a list of super fun gadgets for cooking with kids. We hope you and your family are enjoying this extended time spent together!
