A peak at what we do – more details

School Holiday Program

I can honestly say our programs just keep getting BETTER – each holidays we attract many kids with a GREAT sense of humour who were really enthusiastic to have some fun and learn about food!!  Just awesome, I love this project!

I have divided this page up into four parts…

1. A VIDEO summary of what kids do – heaps of smiling faces!

2. Some examples of the CHALLENGES and some images of the entries we receive. This will give you an idea of the vast range of activities the kids.

3. Some samples of the CHAT BOXES that we run – we do one each day of each program.  These are great to delve into – there are hundreds of kids interacting and getting feedback. 

4. Lastly I have put a link up to the page exactly as the kids saw it last holidays – this is an OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE EXACTLY WHAT THE KIDS EXPERIENCE. 

This is a LONG page so just keep scrolling down to get the full holiday cooking experience!!

These videos are a snapshot of  of what went on in households all over the country on the July and October 2013 programs.… You can tell kids just loved it!

Challenges

Each program we have a range of about ten challenges to cover all sorts of cooking, nutrition, creative and social skills – plus we have others which are just full-on- fun. This will give you a taste of what the kids get up to, but we keep it a surprise as to what the challenges are until the program starts!

THE LAUGH OUT LOUD CHALLENGE…

The most popular have been the Milkie Moustache Challenge, The Food Specs Challenge and the Chins Challenge. No deep learning on these ones… just a desire to have a good time and have some fun!
