My son recently decided that his life goal is to be a chef. My son has been having a rough time with some private matters lately and cooking is a fantastic way to channel his energy. In support of this new dream, his Dad got him a 6 month subscription to Raddish Kids!
I have featured Loot Crate on my blog until I cancelled it and I also post about my Owl Crates every month so why not throw this into the mix! It’s a subscription after all!
I love subscription boxes. I wish I could review them ALL 24/7 but unfortunately I am not made of money. This is a pretty cool subscription box for kids that comes once a month. Inside this is what the kids get:
- THREE laminated recipes
- ONE kitchen tool/utensil
- A fun kitchen project
- Dinner conversation starter cards
- The first box comes with an apron and every box has a patch to add to the apron each month
- THREE culinary skill lessons
- A full complete grocery list
OK… so now that we know what is inside…. Lets take a look at what is in this month’s box… *** HEADS UP!*** these pics are not the greatest. #1 I’m not a professional photographer (plus my phone flat out sucks) and #2 everything is laminated so the kids can save them and use them again and again!
^^ Everything in this month’s box. This was my son’s first box so he got the apron with it. From here on out, there will not be another apron. He will just get patches to attach to it.
^^ The first couple of cards seem to be just a low down of what was in the box for this month. The theme was Creepy Creations! and also has a break down of what needs to be bought at the grocery store for each recipe.
^^ For this box, my son’s cooking utensil for the month was these two cookie cutters. They seem to be very heavy-duty and have a nice rubber top so you don’t hurt your hands.
^^ This is his patch for the month. It’s pretty cute and fits the Halloween Creepy Creations theme.
^^ This is the Kitchen Project that every box contains. This month we will be making slime. My kids love slime but I hate the stuff. We are going to make it though and will be a fun Halloween project.
^^ The first recipe is Eye-Popping Tomato soup. All of these recipes are laminated, illustrated and have fun facts and a cooking skill. With this recipe we will be making tomato soup from scratch using a blender. The eyeballs are mini mozzarella balls and pimento green olives.
^^ Recipe two was Chocolate Creature Cookies and it set up the same way. This one works with the cookie cutters and had some facts about black cats and bats. We will be making these the day of Halloween along with the slime.
^^ The third and final recipe for the October box was Creepy Crawler Spider Sliders. These look awesome! The spider legs are made out of potatoes. The kitchen skill for this recipe is cutting french fries from actual potatoes. Again there are facts and informational tidbits, this time about spiders.
^^ Last but not least, every box comes with these conversation starters for the dinner table. The like a think king of plastic that have a hole to put on a key ring so the kids can keep them and use them again!
There was a lot of cool stuff in this box for a kid looking to advance their culinary skills. Easy to follow and understand information and recipes. Cant wait to see what is in the November box! Hopefully it is Thanksgiving theme to keep up the holiday fun! So far my kids LOVES this box and the recipes are pretty delicious. It makes hanging out in the kitchen with my kids extra fun because I get to learn some new things too!
