Cook With The Kids At Home

With no school until September, the kids are in need of entertainment! At BoroughBox we think there’s no better solution than to get cooking! Whether it’s making pizza, pancakes, brownies or banana bread, we’ve got kits to keep you covered.

Get some quality time with the tykes and get them enthused about cooking at the same time with wholesome baking or having them involved in cooking dinner! Before you do that, though, below are some great places to start.
