I am going to spend a few days visiting my sister in a few weeks time. She has twins in 3rd Grade who both enjoy helping out in the kitchen and I though it would be great if I could help them prepare a meal for their mom and dad.
I would love some suggestions for easy to prepare meals that my nephews can make under my supervision.

Breakfast for dinner would be a great idea for little kids to help with. I think that's the meal that my kids are most confident cooking. They like to cook eggs, pancakes, french toast, etc.
A soup or stew would also be a good idea. They could use kid-friendly knives to chop up a variety of vegetables. Fruit salad would be a good option for warmer months.
Grilled cheese or other grilled sandwiches are good, too. Kids love to flip things on a griddle.
A casserole or lasagna would also be good. They can help with building the different components and it's a one-stop-shop meal.
This is always fun. We supervise with the little ones to make cupcakes and cakes, mostly adding ingredients and stirring. We also make together homemade sausage rolls and banana/blueberry pikelets.
My daughter also really enjoys helping to make cookies using dough and different shaped cut outs for the family to snack on.
Oh i love this. What a great help!!
My kids can all cook pasta (with a little help with the big pot). They also love to make french toast and pancakes. Other easy meals include a pasta bake in the oven, bacon and eggs, rice in the rice cooker and meat and veg (like sausages or rissoles). Its a great help when kids can cook and also helps out the whole family. What a thoughtful idea!
Aside from instant cup noodles, which we are already avoiding, my kids can prepare sandwiches and pancakes.
They are not confident enough to use our stove but can use our microwave oven. So, when we need to go out and have to leave them, I just instruct them to heat what is in the freezer or in the fridge.
