Kids/Parents Activities

This page is all about things kids can do with their parents.  We will share fun ideas on activities like cooking, exercise and other things that are relevant for building a healthy relationship between children and their parents or caregivers.  We welcome contributions from anyone, young or old, in our audience.

To get this page going I went online and got a short list of cookbooks that are supposed to be very child-friendly.  They were all to include safety tips and the like to ensure that your kids learned how to handle themselves in the kitchen and most of all have fun while learning.  This initial list was created by Elizabeth Kennedy of  I will be looking at these books myself to see if there are a few recipes I can try and recommend.  If you have had a positive or negative experience with any of these books, please let us know.
