Do you want to help a child or young adult to learn kitchen skills and be able to prepare simple snacks and meals?
Help them to say “I CAN DO IT!” with this easy to use TomTag visual checklist kit.
When I help to prepare meals I’m learning about hygiene and safety in the kitchen as well as the skills I need to make meals. I might take a TomTag list shopping with me to make sure I have the ingredients I need and use another to get out all the utensils I’m going to use.
Recipes involve following instructions in the right sequence and they’re easier for me to follow when I have a visual list that shows me what I need to do.
It’s easier for me to decide what I want to eat and to make healthier choices when I can see a list of options.
I feel great when I know that I can make meals for myself (and others) and not have to rely on someone else to do it for me. It makes me more independent and confident that I can look after myself.

Simply pick – stick – click and you’re ready in minutes to start helping your child prepare their next meal or snack.
PICK out the symbol stickers that illustrate the steps of the recipe or utensils/equipment you will need. This pack contains 2 copies each of 120 different Widgit symbols – view all the symbols in the gallery below.
All TomTag stickers are water-resistant and can be wiped clean so you never need to worry about any splashes or spills. Every pack comes with a small number of blank stickers for you to add your own personalisation if needed.
STICK each sticker onto a blank button.
Write the name of the recipe, child or mealtime on one of the rectangular labels provided. Decide which coloured tag you want to use and place the label in the slot at the bottom of the tag.
CLICK each button into an empty space of the chosen tag. You’ll find 6 tags in this set so you can keep several meal reminders at once or link several together when there’s a lot of steps involved. Don’t forget to place the symbols in correct order they need to be followed for the recipe.
TomTag’s unique click-in buttons stay securely in place when in use but can easily be removed, repositioned and reused to modify the lists when needed.
READY to use right away. With TomTag, there’s no printing, laminating or Velcro which saves you time AND money. It’s simply less fuss and more fun!
Use each tag on it’s own or join any number of tags together with the attachment loop included in the set – you can buy more from our Pick & Mix options if you need them. The loop can also be used to hang your completed TomTag on a hook or door handle in the kitchen or attach it to clothing so it’s easy to access.
