How to Create a Cookbook for Kids

By Contributor ; Updated April 18, 2017
Take pictures of your child as she makes the recipes for her cookbook.

Getting children involved in preparing meals is an effective method to teach the importance of good nutrition. Make meal preparation fun by creating a kid's cookbook that showcases their cooking efforts and includes their favorite recipes.

Select the recipes to include in the cookbook. Allow the child to pick their favorite recipes or foods. Depending on the age of the child, these recipes could range from a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to hamburgers and french fries.

Punch three holes in the 8 1/2-inch by 11-inch poster board sheets using a three-hole punch. The number of recipes you are planning to include in the cookbook will determine the number of poster board sheets you'll need.

Allow the child to decorate the front and back covers of the binder with items such as stickers, paints, glitter or glued-on beads.

Allow your child to make each of the recipes. Photograph the child as she prepares the food. Paste the photos on the page with the corresponding recipe.

Instruct the child to write down each step of the recipe on a poster board sheet. For example, for a peanut and jelly sandwich, the child should write: 1. Spread peanut butter on bread. 2. Spread jelly on another piece of bread. 3. Put the two pieces of bread together.

Place each completed page with recipe and photo of the child making the recipe into the three-ring binder.
