I think that it would be really fun to do the make-your-own-snacks with What's Cooking + the Toddler Cafe activity. My preschoolers would love it!

By Blogger melonkelli, at 6/26/2008 3:30 PM  

This sounds like fun! My son and my nieces and nephew would enjoy this since some of them love to help me around the kitchen as it is. I can't wait. Thanks!!

Doof-a-palloza sounds fantastic! Did you add the giveaway later? I didn't see this before. Please enter me. We'd love to make Izzap + quesadillas backwards

I would love to win tickets to this event. My 3 year old would get a kick out of creating her own snack. She also loves treasure hunts. Thanks for posting about this new program. I'll look out for it, sounds like a great show.

I'd like to visit the Toddler Cafe! I have the book and it's amazing!!

Hi !

I just found what one has to do to win by reading this blog entry !! :).. We would love to go as my 4 year old loves to cook with me especially rolling out dough and picking leaves and I love to cook and so does my husband. It would be great to see the Google Chefs in Action and also learn more about cooking food for the kids as I am always trying to know more and more what is healthy and tasty and fun for my son and our family :).. So would really love to goo...

Thanks.. promila3@gmail.com

This sounds like a blast, we would love to visit the AZZIP, pizza making backwards and the blind smelling and tasting. Treasure hunts are always fun too!

By Blogger Wesley, at 7/10/2008 8:07 PM  

Mom of 8 would love to take her little ones to this food extravaganza! My little chefs would have a blast and
so would I! Suzie 650 567-9387

Would love to go with our 3 kids ( also known as chefs for the day), and check out some opportunities for partnerships with our kids stores..Peek...Aren't You Curious!
They love food, treasure hunts, cooking and adventures!
