Lots of kids like to help out in the kitchen. And with them out of school, they might be more of a handful than you need in the kitchen. So keep them busy this summer by giving them ways to help with the food prep. Heather Smith and Candace Heward share three fun ways the kids can stay busy in the kitchen.

1. Strawberry Slicester

The Strawberry Slicester is the ultimate gadget for anyone who loves strawberries. With this one utensil, you can make pies, fruit salads, strawberry tarts, strawberry smoothies and homemade ice cream toppings. It’s safer and easier to use than a knife and slices whole strawberries into perfect pieces with a quick squeeze of its handle. And the best part is that it’s easy to use. It’s so easy to use that a 5-year-old could even use it!

Ratcheting Pineapple Slicer

This Ratcheting Pineapple Slicer is great for kids because quickly and easily core and slice a fresh pineapple. It has a ratcheting turning knob for continuous rotations which makes it a breeze to use. And the ratcheting actually makes it easy for little kids’ hands to cut into a pineapple. And with the measurement markings on the length of the rod, it helps you or your kids prevent cutting through the bottom of the pineapple skin.  Once you get the pineapple cut, the knob and rod separate with the press of a button for easy cleaning, and it’s even dishwasher safe!

Star Popsicle Mold

Do you have a little of that smoothie left over that you make this morning to start your day? You can take the leftovers and have your kids make some really great smoothie popsicles, just by pouring in your smoothie into the molds and popping them into the freezer. This set of 6 star-shaped molds holds 4 oz in each mold. Of course, they are reusable and are super easy to use. Just fill the molds and freeze them for at least four hours. Take them out of the freezer five minutes before serving
