Getting Kids Into the Kitchen

Making Corn Muffins for next week's Pack Meeting/Hobo Dinner

Making icing for the cookies

Icing the oatmeal cookies

Pigs in Blankets, Crudite with White Bean Hummus and Oatmeal Cookies

Dinner's Ready!

Den 1 recently met to earn an achievement on cooking. We turned four separate activities into one fun meeting where we knocked out four goals, in just under an hour, and ate dinner together. It was great fun, no one chopped off their fingers, and we figured out that a pig in a blanket made with a cheese stick works great for our vegetarian den member.

No recipe here, but an invitation for you to pick a recipe, set up a few ingredients, and invite the kids to join you in prepping the meal. It may take a little while longer than if it were you alone, but it's worth it. 


  1. Beautiful models! Letting kids cook makes them more inclined to eat different foods. There's also valuable math lessons to be taught, too. What a wonderful instructor you are.

  2. How did the hummus go over? I love it; my kids remain suspect.
