School is out for the summer and I am sure you have a few little ones scurrying around the house looking for things to do. Doing some fun and creative cooking activities together is a great way to bond with your kiddo and have their attention focused on something. Whether you’re making a fun little treat or something healthy, colorful and cute foods are the way to keep the attention of youngsters in the kitchen. If they are making a monster out of apples, they aren’t going to leave their monster half done! They will see it to the end. On a rainy day, activities like this are just what you need to bring the family together.
Bake up some beautiful earth cookies with your kids! These cookies require some skill in figuring out what the cookie will end up looking like, so it’s a great challenge for everyone involved.
