With summer fruits in abundance, we wanted to get the kiddos involved in creating a fun and colorful fruit salsa this summer.
While I love having the kids help out in the kitchen, the idea of my little ones using knives scares me a little. Okay a lot. Since my kiddos are only 6 and (almost) 2, I was excited to find this set of nylon knives from Curious Chef.
Curious Chef is a great company that offers a full range of kitchen tools specifically for kids.
The 3-piece Curious Kids Knife Set is a great tool for getting kids involved in cooking prep. These knives have a serrated nylon cutting edge with a blunt tip and are much safer for skin than metal. The handles are made to fit little hands with soft touch button grips.
I set up both of my kids with their own cutting boards, a nylon knife and some strawberries to chop up.
Both of them really loved using these knives and they did great! I was surprised at how easily the nylon knives cut our fruit. It felt really safe letting the kids help and the kids gained confidence and enjoyed helping me make our healthy fruit salsa for snack. With the nylon knives I wasn't worried about them cutting their little fingers, which took some of the stress off.
The other Curious Kids tool we used was the Fruit and Vegetable Peeler. This tool is made with real stainless steel and will require a little more practice from my kids before they feel more comfortable with this tool. Just like the nylon knives, the fruit peeler has a ergonomically designed handle and is dishwasher safe.
