The New Whis-Kid Student Guidebook is NOW AVAILABLE!
I want to turn your kid into a WHIS-KID in the kitchen.
Get it – see what I did there.
We are going to WHISK UP CONFIDENCE and CREATIVITY in the kitchen!
My boys and I have loved teaching your kids how to cook in the School Cancellation Kids Cooking Lessons. I wanted to make things a little more “formal” by creating the Whis-Kid Guidebook that goes along with all of the video lessons.
IT IS AVAILABLE NOW and you can order right here!!!
(Or you can visit our shop to learn more about the different options we have available – tap here to learn more.)
ORIGINAL SCHOOL CANCELLATION KIDS COOKING LESSON VIDEOS – Weeks 1 through 4!
The perfect school cancellation activities for kids…learning to cook!
School cancelled?! WE GOT YOU!!
The boys and I will be hosting daily cooking lessons for kids at Noon CST on the $5 Dinners Facebook page.
If you can’t watch live, the “replay” and video will stay here on the page and on our YouTube channel, as well as down below.
I know all of these cancellations are so stressful, and we want to help alleviate some of that for you with these educational and entertaining videos and lessons.
And by entertaining, I mean your kids can watch my kids call me cringe-y.
And by educational, I mean they will learn something useful and practical…and it’s not about how to beat their favorite video games!
Towards the end of the Taco Soup lesson, I share an IMPORTANT word for parents and how to take your time teaching your kids to cook. Be sure to watch that part!
Happy cooking, and spending time together in the kitchen!!!

Erin, these menus, shopping lists, and cooking lessons are not just for kids. I as a seasoned citizen find them very helpful and stress releaving. Thank you.

Are you not doing the second week of school cancellation & kids cooking?
Is there going to be week 3? We loved week 1 and 2.
Liz Marshall says
Are you doing videos for the week of the 30th? My 11 yr old autistic daughter has a love for cooking but is still learning. Your videos are perfect and we love them. I can’t wait to see what you and your boys cook up next.
