With Kabobs for Kids, creative kids can go beyond traditional and put their imaginations to work threading all the makings for breakfast, sandwich, or dessert kabobs on a Popsicle stick, bamboo skewer, or a chopstick. They can even make appetizer “mini-bobs” using toothpicks. Thirty sweet and savory recipes paired with great detail shots will let kids have as much fun putting together their treats as they will eating them.

In Kabobs for Kids, it says that “everything tastes better when served on a stick!” My kids would definitely agree, plus, they not only enjoy eating skewered foods, but making them is pretty entertaining, too. The first four chapters include ideas of kabobs for all times of the day. For breakfast, Rainbow Sticks are a colorful way to start the day, with a variety of bright colored fruits threaded onto a wooden skewer. Lunch and Dinner suggestions range from sandwiches to salads. Some, like the Caprese Salad on a Stick are ideal for this type of arrangement, given their typical stacked presentation. My children and I enjoyed making the Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake Sticks, although we tweaked the recipe a bit. The author uses chocolate covered strawberries alternating with pieces of angel food cake and placed on a stick. We made them with plain strawberries and cake, then drizzled chocolate sauce on them and had extra to dip them in, as well. They were delicious and the kids had a great time making them. Kabobs for Kids finishes with Mini Kabob ideas, where the foods are put on toothpicks (including decorative ones), to make tiny treats, instead of the standard longer stick. Kabobs for Kids is the perfect way for kids to play with their food, while getting some wholesome nutrition while they are at it.
