Just for Fun

Fun Non-academic Learning Opportunity

Hello, friends!

My family is using our time away from school, sports, and other activities to rest and enjoy the slower pace. One thing I’ve enjoyed is having time to cook and bake with my kids. They are learning some important life skills! I don’t know about your kids, but mine are eating c-o-n-s-t-a-n-t-l-y while we’re home, so we have plenty of opportunities to practice these skills.  At the very least, they will know how to prepare a few simple meals beyond ramen, Easy Mac, or PB&J.  At best, they may be able to start preparing a few of those meals or snacks on their own!

I’ve seen a few free online cooking classes for kids that look like fun, so I thought I’d share them here in case you’re looking for something new or interesting to try during your time at home.

  • They post videos on the $5 Dinners Facebook and 1:oo PM EST Monday through Friday.

  • These are mostly main dish options.

Delish Free Digital Cooking Classes for Kids

  • Videos remain on Instagram for 24 hours, but if you miss the videos, you can still access the recipes and ingredient lists using the link above.

Happy cooking!

Students, if you try something, send me an email to let me know what you made and how it turned out.
