The kitchen is a GREAT classroom for children! Every time you invite them to cook or bake with you; you are giving them the opportunity to work on reading, math and motor skills.
Did you know that kids are more likely to try new foods if they have the opportunity to help you make it? I once had a girl in one of my cooking classes that insisted she was "allergic to salad", this of course, was absolutely adorable to me, but after making the salad she decided she wasn't really "allergic" after all!
Are you in the Los Angeles area? Are you looking for something fun to do for your child's next birthday party? I am now hosting Kids Baking Parties in the luxury of your own home! I bring all of the ingredients and everything we need to have a fun time in the kitchen!
