Kids in the Kitchen

Friday, Oct. 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Each week little chefs will be making an easy, kid-friendly snack (cookies, mini pizzas, etc) that they make from start to finish.  

Helping in the kitchen is a great learning tool as children practice measuring ingredients, following directions and building their vocabulary.  Join us as we mix things up in the kitchen to stir an interest in kitchen creativity and healthy eating.

Ages 3-5.  Fee: $5 with museum admission.

Where: 11 Davis Avenue, Garden City
