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 INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CLASS:
We Require A Waiver Signed By Parent/Legal Guardian: Prior to admittance to this class, we require a waiver to be signed by a parent or legal guardian. 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 encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver, sign it and either 1) scan and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or 2) bring/send it to class with your student. Without an appropriately 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 have the legal authority to sign a Waiver on behalf of your child at that time. [Click here to download the Waiver]
What To Wear To Class: For safety reasons, we also recommend that students wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.
If Your Child Plans To Attend Class With Someone Else, please add their name(s) to the ‘Comments’ section of your online registration so that we can seat you together; otherwise we cannot ensure that you will be seated together for the class. If you register for multiple students at one time, that registration will prompt you to supply the names of all students you are registering and we will know to seat you together.
Only Registered Students Will Be Allowed In The Classroom During Class: This is so your child will have the best possible experience and the instructors have their full attention. Parents should plan to pick up their students at the end of the advertised hours for their class.
Important Information Regarding Children With Special Needs: Our cooking instructors are skilled in teaching culinary education at an age appropriate level. Several of our instructors even have early childhood and teaching background and certification. However, we are not equipped to work with, nor are these classes designed for, children who may have special needs, issues with focus, or difficulty with sitting still to listen and concentrate on the instructor or issues with relating to other students in a classroom setting. When we encounter a student who requires significant special attention, the experience for the other students suffers. While our class and cooking camps are well staffed, we just don’t have the staff to be able to allocate someone to work directly with your child for the entire class. Should we identify a situation where we believe a student falls within one or more of these categories, we will be contacting you to pick up your students. Unfortunately, we will not be able to issue a refund for all or any part of the class or camp fees. Please feel free to call us to discuss any questions or concerns that you feel should be discussed in advance of your child’s class. Please be aware of our 5-day cancellation policy.
