Children’s Lessons and Parties
Teaching children to cook teaches a variety of helpful life skills such as math and science, when measuring and baking in a fun environment. Children also learn to read carefully and follow directions in a practical environment where they see how actual results depend on their accuracy and ability to closely adhere to what recipe says. Cooking also helps with dexterity and hand-eye coordination as well as teaching self-control and patience.
Children’s lessons and parties focus on fun and healthy foods that expand a child’s horizons beyond the typical pizza, pasta, and finger foods while using flavors that are familiar yet interesting. Group baking classes are also available, focusing on single serving items that can be taken home after a party as a favor.
Individual and small group lessons are approximately 2 hours and parties are approximately 3 hours and include cooking and one food related art activity.
Liza has experience teaching in a Montessori environment and has worked extensively with special needs children. If your child has special needs please do not hesitate to set up a lesson with Liza’s Kitchen.
