Giving your kids free rein to play in the family kitchen may not be the safest idea just yet. You should leave the cooking and sharp objects to the adults for the time being. Luckily, toy kitchens give little ones a chance to explore something they're interested in before they're ready to move on to real cooking, and there are so many on the market to choose from for different age ranges. Toy kitchens foster creativity, help your kids develop their fine motor skills, and maybe—just maybe—they'll spark an interest in taking over dinner duty someday.

Finding the right play kitchen set for your household may be dependent on a couple of different variables like size, budget, age range, and overall aesthetic. This list includes something for everyone, like a set perfect for smaller spaces, a luxurious Pottery Barn play set that to blend in with your actual home design, and others that are less about the set-up and more about the lifelike food accessories and "appliances."

To keep your kids playing creatively (and screen-free!), consider adding one of these adorable toy kitchens to your home. And for kids who are a little bit older, here are some recipes that you both can make together so they can get involved in the kitchen, plus kid's cooking kitsthat can be delivered straight to your door or on a semi-frequent basis so your child can explore their passion for cooking in an easy and safe way.
