Holiday Cooking Classes for Kids

Make festive holiday treats, decorate cookies, and more at these hands-on cooking classes for kids and parents.

|

The holidays wouldn’t be complete without tasty cookies and treats, and making them as a family is half the fun. For kids who love lending a hand in the kitchen, cooking classes are a fun way to get out of the house and learn new skills on their own or alongside mom or dad. Decorate gingerbread houses, bake sweet holiday treats, or create edible cookie art in these six festive classes. Who knows, you might even find that your kids love making the sweet treats more than actually eating them—maybe. Either way, you”ll have a lot of fun cooking together in the kitchen.
