Li'l Kids (5-8): Let's Play With Our Food... and Learn To Cook!
School’s out, school’s out! What do smart kids do in the summer? They keep on learning, that’s what.
NOTE: While we do love the parents, this class is just for the Little Chefs to be here without their parents. This is your day to sit by the pool and relax. You’re welcome.
This BRAND NEW 4-hour interactive class is designed for little kids (ages 5-8) where they’ll all about the science of cooking as we go all ‘Alton Brown’ in the kitchen and do science experiments that they can eat.
This ain’t rocket science, kids. It’s good clean and tasty fun. What makes soda fizz? What makes quick breads rise? What does yeast do? How does ice cream freeze? It’s so easy (and fun), even the youngest chefs can do it.
Today’s experienced instructor, Ariel Johnston, is a Certified Nutritionist, and with over 140 nutrition and cooking classes to kids and adults through the Kansas City area for the local food bank, Harvesters, under her belt, (and over a year teaching kids’ classes in CCKC kitchens), you can rest assured that your budding chefs are in very capable hands with this engaging instructor. Plus, she’s lots of fun!
She will cover new ground and discover these edible secrets as kids learn to make summertime favorites such as Lemon Soda, Lemon Quick Bread, and homemade Ice Cream. Plus, they’ll get their hands dirty as play with their food as they conduct a “magic milk experiment: and make edible Peanut Butter Play Dough and ‘real’ food towers.
This is the only place where kids get to play with their food, and eat their homework!

Important: We require a waiver to be signed on behalf of each student by a parent or legal guardian prior to your child’s admittance to this class. This waiver requests a phone number where you can be reached during the class if necessary, and names of any additional people who are authorized to pick up the child after class. We strongly encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver and bring it to class with your student. If we don’t receive a signed Waiver, your child will not be allowed to attend class. We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule. If someone other than the parent drops off your child, they will need evidence that they are the legal guardian for your child in order to sign a Waiver at that time. For safety reasons, we also recommend that students under 18 wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.
We are dedicated to offering age-appropriate kids cooking classes. From Li’l Kids In The Kitchen™ (5-8) to our popular Junior Chefs in the Kitchen™ (9-14) classes for young chefs who are interested in becoming more proficient and self-assured cooks.
