Hey, this is Sweet Teen again! Today I have an awesome idea for you and even teens out there who want to teach while earning a little money. This is all about how to host a simple cooking class for kids. This is such a simple way to entertain kids and teach them some cooking skills at the same time. This idea can be used as a party, or a class just for kids. I’ve even included our free Cooking Camp Recipe Book Printable at the bottom of this post. I did this cooking camp for girls ages 7 and up in our neighborhood. I charged a small fee for them to attend as well as for supplies and time. It was a great success and it helped me earn money for my own summer camp.
COOKING CAMP TIPS:
* Your kitchen will get messy. Have the cooking students help clean up at the end of class. It’s part of cooking!
* Have all the ingredients out and in an easy to use area before the students arrive.
* Reassure the kids that they are doing a good job. Remind them that not all recipes turn out exactly the same every time. Cooking takes practice.
* Have paper towels and kitchen cloths handy for spills and hand-drying.
* Encourage each student to bring their own apron.
* Remember to have everyone wash their hands before starting. Also, remind them about not licking their fingers and to wash their hands often.
* Start with easy recipes for beginners. Recipes with just a few ingredients and simple steps are best. Having them work in groups on different things helps with crowd-control.
cup heavy whipping cream (without sugar)
pinch of salt (for taste)
the cold cream and salt in a mason jar.
Close the lid tightly, and shake until the butter is solid. Then spread it on bread or a biscuit and
tsp. baking powder
all the dry ingredients together. Drop
in the oil, and mix around. Put in
enough water to keep the dough together, but don’t put in so much that it’s
sticky. Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until
a fork comes out clean when stuck into the biscuits.
