Child potholders for small sized hands

I have a ten year old grandson who has been cooking since he was 3. He can't bake on his own because adult sized potholders swim on him. Any Google search seems to turn up crafty items not really intended to really be used. Can you point me in a direction?

Also, Caroline, if anyone in the family has craft abilities (knit, crochet, sew) you could custom make something to fit your grandson's hands.

Hi Caroline, I would recommend our Five Two potholders, which we specifically tested to make sure they'd work for people with smaller hands. One side is silicone, so they are definitely meant to be used and are very heat resistant. (The oven mitts I would not recommend because I think they'll be too big for a 10-year-old.) See what you think:

Thank you. We won't know until we try. I am ordering the pot holder set.

Oh good! Let me know how they work out -- and if they don't fit, I'm happy to help you find something else.
