Dadeland Mall invites children of all ages to roll up their sleeves and explore the fun side of food with hands-on learning activities during the Simon Kidgits Club’s Super Duper Mini Chefs event on Friday, May 21, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., in front of Kay Jewelers.
“Dadeland Mall is thrilled to welcome families to take part in the Simon Kidgits Club’s Super Duper Mini Chefs event,” said Renee Lanzara, director of marketing and business development of Dadeland Mall. “Where else can our youngest chefs have fun expressing themselves with food, while Mom and Dad enjoy an entertaining family moment?”
The Simon Kidgits Club will transform Dadeland Mall into a magical kitchen where kids can take part in many fun activities, including:
• Make sweet cereal necklaces and bracelets;
• Create trail mix consisting of raisins, M&M’s, mini chips, pretzels and more;
• Decorate mini cupcakes with Sweetness Bake Shop & Café;
• Learn how to make cookie ice cream sandwiches with Nestle Toll House Café;
• Learn how to roll dough and make a pizza pie with Cozzolli’s Pizza; • Create yogurt parfaits and sample chicken nuggets with Chick-Fil-A, including a special visit by the Eat More Chikin Cow, and
• Learn how to twist pretzels with Auntie Anne’s and sample on-the-go, famous pretzel stix.
Children also will have the opportunity to enjoy a nutritional magic show by Amy the Magical Chef, decorate aprons and enjoy Strawberry Shortcake coloring sheets. Simon Kidgits Club members will receive a Strawberry Shortcake doll and a Kidgits Oven Mitt Baking Set (while supplies last).
Kids and their parents are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item (canned meats such as tuna and chicken, macaroni, etc.) that will be donated to Feeding South Florida.
