My grand nephew is 4 1/2 and his sister is 2 1/2. For Christmas, I went to Big Lots and bought two sets of colorful measuring cups, spoons, spatulas, wooden spoons, mixing bowls, cookie cutters, etc., and put them in a plastic bin with a lid. Gave one of them a 9x9 pan and a cookie sheet, gave the other a loaf pan and a cupcake tin. Spent about $80 total. Then I typed up some of our family's favorite simple recipes (Mix-in-the-Pan Cake, Beer Bread) and them in plastic sheets. Added a couple of cake mixes from Whole Foods and put the dry ingredients for the family recipes into Zip-Loc bags. Big hit with the two of them, according to their mother.

What I learned long ago with my own children is that child-sized cooking implements don't work unless they come with child-sized cooking implement recipes.
