So much more than a cookbook!
In addition to over 100 easy-to-make recipes, it is filled with family fun and food ideas that appeal to young cooks, parents, grandparents and teachers. There are party ideas and kid-friendly foods and activities for all seasons of the year.
Involving children in cooking activities helps them learn about and appreciate food as well as providing lots of other worthy experiences. These include learning to share, following directions, using good manners, practicing food safety, and tasting foods enjoyed by different cultures.
Each season features food appropriate for that time of year. You will find Fruit Roll-Ups, Pumpkin Bars, Holiday Cookies, Meringue Hearts, Bunny’s Favorite Egg Salad, Surprise Baked Potatoes, Tortilla Wraps, Strawberry Slush, Frosted Cones, and other recipes children and adults will enjoy making and eating.
In addition to the recipes, there are suggestions for seasonal activities. Some of these include making placemats out of fall leaves, observing holiday customs from different countries, planting a vegetable in a garden or clay pot, arranging summer flowers for a centerpiece, and many others. Each season offers its special blend of ideas and suggestions.
