Staycation food fun with kids

Three fun cooking projects to enjoy as a family!

On busy weeknights (and even weekends), it can be hard to get kids involved in meal prep when all you want to do is get food on the table quickly. If you’re able to slow the pace a little – like when you’re enjoying a staycation at home – everyone will have more patience and enjoy both the process and the outcome. Here are three fun and tasty projects to try with your kids.

Homemade Rock Candy – kids will love watching the sugar crystals form, and after a week they can eat their delicious creations. Click here for the recipe


5 Minute Magic Lasagne – that’s right – it only takes five minutes to assemble this delicious shortcut lasagne. Click here for the recipe.


Cupcake Ice Cream Sundaes – these sweet treats are sneaky! While they look exactly like ice cream sundaes, they’re actually frosted cupcakes! Click here for the recipe.
