Kids Cooking Camps!

A few weeks ago I held a couple of cooking camps over Spring Break. Cooking camps are a great way to feed a kids interest in food and cooking. They get to spend a few hours making treats with other kids and having a great time. I like to sneak in a few healthy treats too! After spending a few hours at cookie camps, kids often want to cook more at home and are at least a bit more interested in what is going on in the kitchen.

 The first Spring Break camp was a big kids camp where they made Irish Brown Scones, Minty Ice Cream Pie, Chocolate Mashed Potato Cake and Irish Butter Cookies. The second was for the younger kids and they rolled out and decorated sugar cookies, made Leprechaun bark, Rainbow skewers and Shamrock biscuits.

Look at how much fun they had!

The little ones had a ton of fun as well.
