Why am I bringing this up? Of course there has to be a reason because this isn't the kind of blog post you usually read on a Monday here at More Than Mommies. It is still fitting, though, because it is kind of like a My Finds Monday! I bring you news of a project that Christine and I started working on back in July that is just starting to take off now!
The Little Chefs Project with Chef Boyardee and The Motherhood!
We were really excited because it gave us an opportunity to get into the kitchen with our kids (all 8 of them) and get them together to work on a really neat little project!
You can see the "No Sew" Aprons that we made with our kiddos: HERE
What: A virtual Cook-Along called Teachable Moments, part of The Little Chefs Project series on The Motherhood.
The Little Chefs Project series consists of live chats called Cook-Alongs taking place every Thursday at 2 p.m. ET until November 15, and each Cook-Along covers a different topic around cooking with kids.
Teachable Moments addresses how you can use the kitchen as a fun, practical classroom to teach anything from math to culture. We will be posting a blog post about our Teachable Moment Cook Along Experience later this week!
When: Thursday, October 18, at 2 p.m. ET. It will last 30 minutes.
Where: The Motherhood – here is the link to the page where the class will be held: Teachable Moments
About the class: Let your recipe box and cooking supplies help you make learning fun for your kids! And the best part: at the end of the lesson, you can all enjoy the meals you created together. Find out how you can work math, science, culture, and even history into kitchen time with your Little Chefs.
To participate, just click the link above, log into The Motherhood using your member ID (if you don’t have one, it’s easy and free to sign up), and chat away in the text-based comments. We’ll also have a video feed running during the half-hour Cook-Along, so you’re welcome to show up simply to watch if you’d like!
The Cook-Along is sponsored by Chef Boyardee, and it is hosted by The Motherhood. You can visit Chef Boyardee online at http://www.chefboyardee.com/ or on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/
