It's holiday season, and the best part? Food! Your kid might not be able to cook a turkey yet, but they'll definitely be able to handle these easy holiday recipes for kids.

Following these step-by-step instructions, even young kids will be able to make scones, trifle, and cucumber sandwiches with just a little help from an adult. And who knows…you might love these so much you add them to your traditional holiday feasts! 

Let's start!

Cooking utensils:

1 oven (warmed to 325 degrees F/165 degrees C)

2 trays for the oven

1 silpat (reusable silicone mat) or parchment paper

1 small muffin pan

1 round cookie cutter the size of your small muffin pan

2-3 medium-sized bowls

1 peeler

1 knife (plastic knife for kids!)

1 whisk

1 rubber spatula

2-4 shot glasses

1 digital scale

1 measuring cup or a set of measuring spoons

1 tea kettle


Scones for the Holidays

A delightful tea time treat that's also perfect for Thanksgiving! This easy holiday recipe for kids would be a great addition to your holiday traditions. Feeling munchy as you're waiting for the big Thanksgiving meal? Have a little teatime snack! The raisins are the perfect addition as it gives the scone the sweet and savory flavor. A true classic!


460g or 3 1/2 cup of white flour

75g or 1/3 cup of granulated sugar

15g or 1 Tablespoon of baking powder

120g or 1/2 cup of cold butter (cubed)

3 eggs

125g or 3/4 cup raisins

70g or 1/3 cup whipping cream


1. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and butter in a bowl using your hand or a mixer.
Note: If you are using your hands, crush the cold butter until you cannot feel the big chunks in the mixture.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and the whipping cream until well mixed. Add the raisins, then mix again to combine.
3. Combine the two mixtures until it turns into a dough. Then transfer the dough onto a clean countertop, knead, and flatten into a large circle about an inch thick. 
4. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out circles and place them in a muffin pan. If you don't have a cookie cutter, you can cut it in wedges instead using a knife. After they're cut, place them on a large baking sheet lined with silpat or parchment paper.

5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown at the bottom and around the edges. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the scones to cool for 10 minutes before transferring them to a large plate.

Note: Turn the pan at the half-time period ( 7th or 10th-minute mark) for a more even cooking of the scones on all sides

Voila! The scones are done!

Set aside or arrange them on your flavorful plate. Let's go to the second recipe!


Cucumber and Cream Cheese Sandwiches

This simple cucumber and cream cheese sandwich is so good you'll want to indulge in it anytime of the year. This easy, tasty recipe is so easy for kids to make, don't be surprised if they ask to make it over and over. 


1 whole cucumber

1 cup of cream cheese

1 cup of salt

2-4 bread slices


  1. Peel a whole cucumber and cut as thinly as possible. Put cucumber slices on a plate on a napkin or paper towel, then sprinkle a pinch of salt over the cucumbers. (The salt draws the water out of the cucumbers, which is then absorbed by the napkin.) Set aside.
2. Spread the cream cheese on the bread and assemble cucumbers between 2 slices.

Cut off the edges of the bread, then slice into four triangles. 

Easy-peasy! Can't wait to eat and savor the scones and the sandwiches?
