If there’s one thing children love, it’s cookingÂ in the kitchen. My two bothÂ enjoy bakingÂ with me and helping their daddy make curries and stir fries, so I’m loving the idea of kitting them out in these chef sets from Cookery Doodle Doo. They are based on the designs for professional adult chefs, but have the added bonus of practical popper fastenings and a cute woodland pattern. They’ve also been tested for shrinking – that’s a good thing as (if Alfie and Kitty’s kitchen escapades are anything to go by) they’re bound to need a LOT of washing. Available in sizes from 3 to 9, Â£29.99 for a jacket and hat. There are also coordinating aprons and t-shirts available, plus two alternative prints. Equally great for pretend play, of course, and a brilliant gift.
