This week I’ve been having fun in the kitchen with Erin thanks to Persil’s campaign ‘Cook with The Kids’. All the children enjoy helping out in the kitchen and it is something I have encouraged from a young age. So when Persil challenged us to get cooking with the children we couldn’t resist accepting.
Sometimes when it’s busy here we don’t manage to cook together and since the children went back to school we haven’t had the chance. Cook with The Kids aims to get parents in the Kitchen and cooking with their children. Don’t worry about the mess you make just enjoy the chance to create fun cooking memories.
Persil have teamed up with Fiona Faulkner, Celebrity food expert who has created some fun child friend recipes to help you start creating those foodie memories. Persil sent us a goody bag with a lovely Persil branded apron and a chef hat along with the set of recipe cards from Fiona Faulkner, some Persil Washing Up Liquid, a whisk and silicone cake cases to get us started.
Erin in particular was very excited when she saw the goodies and we spent some time looking through the recipe cards to decide which one to try. The plan was to do some baking with just Erin one afternoon after school.
Unfortunately over last weekend I was unwell and was unable to source some of the ingredients needed for the recipes. However not one to admit defeat I decided we would still do some cooking together but would make cupcakes. So on Tuesday afternoon Erin and I got everything we needed together and got cooking.
We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking session, it was nice to do as a one to one activity as usually it will be a case of at least three of the four children joining in. Erin managed to do a lot of the cake mixing herself and managed to spoon the cake mixture into the case herself. I had intended to let Erin decorate the cupcakes once cooled, however she had other ideas and didn’t want too! But thank you Persil for the challenge, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and even better, enjoyed the cupcakes when the boys got home.
Persil has just launched a on-pack promotion on their Washing Up Liquid where parents can collect points for every bottle of Washing Up Liquid bought and exchange them for Kids Cookery items, such as aprons, colourful whisks and other great items.
