Non Reader Recipes

Whether you call them non reader recipes, rebus recipes, or picture recipes we have what you are looking for. If your kids aren't old enough to read yet they most likely shouldn't be cooking on the stove, using knives or kitchen appliances. This limits your options of what your non reader can create in the kitchen.

They should always have an adult present to supervise but if you want to give them a chance to follow a recipe and create something on their own, here are a few recipes they can “read” that you can download.

A great idea is to print off the recipes and put them in sheet protectors. Place pages in a three ring binder and it can be your kids very own cookbook.

**Please note some recipes may require an adults prep work (for example, cutting fruit) before they can start with the recipe themselves.
