Involve the kids

Being at home can be challenging for both parents and children. Patience, relaxation and a lot of creativity are essential ingredients for kids to have fun, learn and feel stimulated.

Start with a cooking contest

Challenge the little ones to have a cooking contest. Each child can be responsible for creating a recipe and the parents can act as the judge. With a wooden spoon, paper and tape, create a voting system with numbers or smiles. The recipe with the best flavour and presentation wins!

Ponies or superheroes?

Children love things that are "out of the box" or that break the rules. Why not have a picnic in the living room? Let the little ones dress up or invite their favorite toys: Spiderman, Batman, princesses or ponies. Then, simply put a large picnic blanket on the floor and have fun!

No yeast? No problem!

Kids want to make homemade bread but you've run out of yeast? There are many options to make your own. Old dough, sourdough, chemical leavening, flatbreads... Read our article to learn more!

Always keep moving

Create a physical activity routine to use up energy. Anything goes: dancing, inventing choreography, somersaults, picking up toys from the floor, and even cleaning up the house. Try the “fill and tidy the pantry challenge” with the help of the kids:

• Remove everything and arrange by categories (canned goods, spices, cereals, preserves, baking, etc.).
• If preferred, line the shelves with paper.
• Fill the pantry with homemade ingredients.
• Use airtight jars and containers, preferably transparent, to preserve cookies, granola, jam and others.
• Print labels at home to identify the jars.

Kneading, shaping and cutting

Make a simple dough, let the little ones roll it out, cut it with fun shapes and decorate. You can even decorate “virtual cookies” that you take pictures of to share with family and friends.
