If miniature shopping carts and toy kitchens have taught us anything, it’s that kids get really excited about some pretty mundane things, like grocery shopping and cooking. But instead of having them serve up yet another imaginary feast, why not build on their interest with real-life culinary skills? Meal prep is a great way to keep kids engaged during spring and summer vacations—plus it gives you one more helping hand in the kitchen. To that end, the Groupon Coupons team put together some easy ways to get kids fired up about cooking.
Kids and teens can whip up a good time during hands-on classes, which cover everything from shortbread cookies to handmade pasta and carne asada tacos. Life-skills worth having!
Cookies in the shape of sorting hats, snitches, and scars? Sign us up, please! Your kids will bake and decorate some truly magical sweets during junior chef classes at Williams Sonoma.
Kids take frosting to the next level with foodcrafting classes at Jo-Ann. They’ll play with transfer patterns and fondant cutouts to make an array of desserts almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
