Tickle Fingers

making it easy & fun to cook with young children

What you need

You need very little to cook with a toddler - they can use most of what you have already. There are a few things which can make it easier, safer or more fun: aprons, plastic or stainless steel mixing bowls, smaller soft utensils, silicone cupcake cases, shaped cookie cutters, child-safe knives, child-height tables, flour dredgers, handle apple peelers, handle cheese graters, and non-stick baking mats.  To help you source these, scroll down to see a selection of our favourites.  Some of the items are available to buy direct from us - look for the 'add to cart' box.  

Product Reviews: If you have a baking or cooking product you would like us to review and feature here (if we like it!), please email contact@ticklefingers.co.uk.   We will make it clear if any of the products below have been given to us to review and our opinions will be our own. 

Aprons; just because the little chefs love them...

Child-safe knives; for early safe cutting practice 

We love Curious Chef products.  Unfortunately they are currently only available to customers in the US.  You can find some of their products on Amazon in the UK, but you pay a premium.  We are trying to persuade them to ship internationally!!!  

Child-height tables or FunPods; so they're not balancing at a worktop

Cookie cutters; because you can never have too many fun shapes
