For $37, today's side deal gets you a series of four cooking and nutrition classes from Your Play Café in Los Lunas, a $75 value. Each series is one class a week for four weeks on Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Choose the first session, starting June 18, or the second, starting July 16. All materials are provided, including the food, and you get to eat whatever you make.
Your Play scrambles the café paradigm by welcoming children and designing its space around extensive indoor and outdoor play areas, designed to reconcile the often mutually contradictory parental impulses to spend time with the kids and get the heck out of the house. The café aspires to be a family hangout that fulfills both the grown-up need for caffeine and adult conversation and the childhood need to slip down the slide.
The 60 to 90 minutes of class time not only allows you to spend certified quality time with your kid, but also lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating. Dicing, slicing, and sautéing, you and your child will have the chance to cover the basics of nutrition and food safety while preparing a complete, quick, satisfying meal. Each class, kids will work by themselves and collaboratively on an entree or dessert.
