I know it isn't cold everywhere but right now it is very cold where I am sitting. I thought what better activity to do with kids on a cold day than cooking. It will keep all the kids occupied and warm.
Honest Pretzels: and 64 Other Amazing Recipes for Cooks ages 8 & Up by Mollie Katzen has just come out in paperback. It has great recipes for both kids and adults. It has recipes for foods like Best Hot Chocolate & Creamy Corn Soup which would be great on a cold day like today. Although if you live in a warm climate than you can make Icy Strawberry Slush or Frozen Fruit Pops. Either way it is great book to get kids interested in cooking or for the child who already wants to learn. My nephew Joseph is big on helping in the kitchen....this is perfect for kids like him!
Mollie Katzen also has other cooking books for kids like Pretend Soup & Salad People....which are meant ages preschool & up!
