Today's Fun Friday activity-Film a cooking show! I know, it sounds a bit strange but believe me when I tell you that my kids, ages 2-4, love this!
What you need:
-A video camera (or phone or laptop with camera....etc....)
-Chef hats for everyone in the family. Visit here for an easy DIY version
-A kid friendly recipe (we always do "make your own pizza" for Cooking Show)
Set the stage and you're ready to go! We set up all the ingredients on the kitchen table and prop the video camera up somewhere to film the show. After I say "ACTION" the little chefs are off! Pizza dough is flying and so are the laughs. We usually get really silly trying to talk in fancy, french sounding accents (why, french...I have no idea?) and somewhere along the way my husband goes crazy and starts tossing ingredients up in the air and making a really big, fun, mess. We all have a great time pretending to be fancy chefs.
After we film our show, we all sit together and watch the episode while we eat the meal we just prepared. The kids love seeing themselves on TV acting like the next Top Chef and I will always cherish these silly memories with my family.
Easy. Affordable. Fun.
If you film a cooking show, share it with us! I will have to dig one up to share with you soon!
