Li’l Kids (5-8): Buon Natale! Little Kids Celebrate Christmas in Little Italy
Today, mini-Italian chefs (ages 5-8) and their adult partners will take a trip across the ocean to celebrate the Christmas holidays – Little Italy-style.
Today’s instructor, Ariel Johnston, has taught over 140 nutrition and cooking classes to kids and adults through the Kansas City area for the local food bank, Harvesters, so you can rest assured that you’re in very capable hands with this engaging instructor. Plus, she’s lots of fun!
We’ll begin our interactive culinary party as Ariel teaches you how to make special holiday-themed red and green pasta - from scratch. That’s right! It’s so easy (and fun), even the littlest chefs can do it!
Next, the kids will get their hands in on even more cooking action as Arial teaches basic culinary techniques like knife skills (with kid-friendly knives, of course!), stirring, the proper way to measure, and more, that you’ll practice as you create a tasty red sauce that will pair perfectly with your homemade pasta.
Finally, we’ll end our kid-friendly Italian Christmas feast with one of Santa’s favorite treats - Cone-oli’s – a unique twist on a classic Italian dessert that you’re gonna love. The kids will get to decorate them with holiday-themed sprinkles, too! A great class to get the kids in the Christmas spirit!

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.
