If you’ve been spending more time in the kitchen during these quarantine days, you’re not alone. But, now, you can get your little ones to join in on the fun with a little help from Pixar and its YouTube series, “Cooking with Pixar.”

The series makes cooking more engaging and fun for kids by allowing them to cook with some of their favorite characters. Each video features a recipe and animated stars from Pixar films.

Whip up a Pizza Planet pizza with Forky from Toy Story 4 for dinner, a birthday cake with Ian and Barley from Onward on a rainy afternoon, Ratatouille with poached eggs with Remy, or dumplings with Bao himself (the video for which doesn’t use measurements, so try this, for a little help). The best part is the videos are all less than 2 minutes long, making them perfect for children’s (and really everyone’s right now) short attention span.

Once your little one tires out of the kitchen, if you’re still looking for ways to keep them entertained, try putting on Disney’s virtual fireworks show or calling Mickey Mouse with their bedtime hotline.
