“They loved getting all their ingredients and utensils out ready to use and then checking them against the card to make sure they had everything. They also loved cracking the eggs. Kids just love cracking eggs!! Honestly, they really had a fun time doing it and as I am not a natural baker, it helped me also. Plus… it tasted delicious”

Great lunchtime alternative!
‘Edward absolutely loved making the Rainbow Omelette Muffins today, the recipe was easy to follow with simple instructions. He couldn’t wait for them to cool down to have a taste. Great lunchtime alternative and perfect healthy after school snack for his big sister.
Silicone moulds would definitely have helped (we don’t have any) as they stuck slightly to the paper cases that we had in the cupboard’.

I did it all on my own!
‘I really enjoyed making the bread, it was quick and fun and I hardly made any mess…. Mummy was happy about that!’

Dinner party made mostly by our 6 year old!
We received the box so quickly after ordering. My daughter was so excited and the fact it was personalised to her was her favourite! We made the cake and the bread in a bag (so easy and not as messy as it normally is!) she learnt how to be more careful around the hob and how to chop vegetables (for the vegetable soup) safely. She was so proud of herself and wrote out a menu for her daddy. She copied the card to lay the table in a proper way and we had a beautiful dinner party made mostly by our 6 year old!! Thank you.

Little magic packages perfect for a rainy day!
We had been introduced to Sid & Nancy cooking academy by a friend and the idea is wonderful, it came pretty speedily and for a small package that can fit through your letterbox, it contains a lot! Our favourite bits are the scavenger hunt, searching for the ingredients at home and in the supermarket and the wipe-clean recipe cards, they can be used over and over again and each child can fill it out and then it can be wiped away for the next time! Fab! So much thought has gone into it and we loved the badge, perfect little touch! I have twin girls aged 4 and they fully got involved as much as my inner control freak would let them. With Christmas around the corner, if you have a birthday coming up or even just for a rainy weekend these little magic packages would be a great gift. I mean who doesn’t like food!

Such great kid-friendly instructions!
We got so busy we forget the ‘in progress’ shots and almost forgot to take one of the finished dish! Safe to say we enjoy making our Sid and Nancy cooking academy meals so much we forget about everything else!! Such a lovely activity to do together and such great kid-friendly instructions, beautifully illustrated and really simple. Middle child especially loves the scavenger hunt for ingredients
I’m also looking forward to using the chatter cards at teatime to help direct the conversation away from the usual stuff!⠀
They all loved the food even my fussy four-year-old!
My 9-year-old was so excited to get started with the box. Perfect for lockdown or rainy days for all the family to enjoy whatever the ages, my son Franklin who is 2 enjoys getting involved. We’ve never made bread before & was worried it wouldn’t turn out ok but it was perfect. They all loved the food even my fussy four-year-old!
