Smashed Potatoes Field Trip

My kids love to cook and help in the kitchen.  So I knew they would love our March field trip to a local home based cooking school called Smashed Potatoes.

The kids learned about kitchen safety, the food pyramid, and then made calzones and popcorn ball microphones.

The woman who hosted our field trip was so patient with the kids and did a wonderful job explaining things to them.  There was a small group the day we went so she let Mauryn participate. The kids all had a blast and they are still talking about it one week later.

I took far too many pictures so I put them into a slideshow.  Enjoy!
