Tip: Buy a child-sized apron and have it personalized with the birthday child's name (also available at www.whatscooking.info). Wrap it in a box filled with child-friendly cooking tools (OXO makes wonderful ones that are great for small hands; for a large selection, go to www.surlatable.com). Combine it with a "make your own chocolate kit" or "make your own gummies kit." Even more fun, throw in a few of your child's favorite recipes – it might encourage a budding cook to start collecting his own. Go to www.whatscooking.info.
