One of the toys in the Shopkins line, Pickle Rocket, allows kids to make their own recipes

Cooking with kids can be a challenge, but sometimes a simple recipe can take a lot of teaching. If you want to encourage kids to try cooking for themselves, you need to provide them with easy to follow instructions.

So, we’ve put together four different recipes from Shopkins, the world’s most popular, interactive toy line. These recipes are easy to follow and only need to be performed with a few few simple ingredients.

Shopkins: Pickle Rocket

These cherry pickle balls are a great choice for keeping the kids busy and hungry during your trips to the grocery store. Simply drop one ball of Pickle Rocket into your child’s mini jar and stir every so often to encourage them to eat their pickles. When finished, you can easily scoop them out using your fork and serve them up.

Let’s face it. Egg salad isn’t the most fancy of sandwiches. But, when done right, it can become a delicious, crunchy treat that your kiddos won’t tire of making. To make an egg salad on a stick, simply unwrap the egg and put the leftover mixture onto your assembled stick. Have fun trying to stir it and see how fast you can get it to rise.

Shopkins: Pigs + Plate

We can’t think of a better way to introduce kids to hamburgers and toast. After you carefully carve your patties, place your meat on a plate and toss it with your chosen toppings of tomatoes, onions, lettuce, cheese and mayonnaise. To make a side, simply combine the drippings from the sauce and the burgers. Serve it alongside a slice of toast.

Shopkins: Chunky fruit dip

For ages: 3 and up

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Nutrition Info: Calories: 300; Fat: 32g; Carbohydrate: 18g; Protein: 12g; Cholesterol: 0mg; Folate: 10g; Sodium: 210mg

Let’s be honest: The big reveal isn’t always memorable. So why not just whisk up a batch of chunky dip instead? This snack will please the little ones, and it will leave them the same amount of time as usual to find their favorite toy or lovable character.

Shopkins: Sprinkles Dip

For ages: 3 and up

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Nutrition Info: Calories: 300; Fat: 32g; Carbohydrate: 18g; Protein: 12g; Cholesterol: 0mg; Folate: 10g; Sodium: 215mg

As there is no set recipe for sprinkles, this is a great one for younger kids to create. They can have fun trying to decide which colors they want to go with, or they can just start making the mix for themselves. They can then decide what flavor they want to go with and make some delicious dip from this ingredient. To make the appropriate color mixture, simply cut all of the colored beads out and put them on a plate. After you’re done, have fun mixing them up.
