Young children love to cook, and everywhere you look it seems people are telling you of it’s importance. But Cooking with toddlers can be messy, takes preparation, and requires a certain amount of dedication to the cause. This is where Crafty Cooks comes in. Children as young as 2.5 years can come along to a home environment, and in small groups have great fun making a whole range of sweet and savoury foods, enough to take home and share with the family. The children will cook completely from scratch learning new and valuable life skills through play. Cooking is fantastic for a nurturing a whole array of skills, it builds confidence within the children and is a lovely inclusive activity for a carer and child to do together. At the end of each session the children receive their own recipe card, building a file of tried and tested recipes to recreate at home.
Crafty Cooks teaches children the basics of cooking in a fun, informal and safe environment. Groups are kept to a minimum to ensure that each child is given the opportunity to really flourish and become an important part of the group., whilst the food is cooking the opportunity is taken for the children to touch and taste different foods. They will be encouraged to compare smells, textures and tastes and will learn their origin. This is a very important part of the session, you will find that children will try foods many wouldn’t normally contemplate tasting at home purely because they see the other children doing it, and of course they want to eat what they have cooked.Crafty Cooks are always on the look out for fun loving people to bring Crafty Cooks to their area under their franchise scheme, for more information see www.craftycooks.co.uk www.facebook.com/craftycooks and follow their exploits on www.craftycooks.wordpress.com or e-mail email@example.com
