Rise and shine! In this class, children ages 2 to 3 years will learn how to make nutritious and easy recipes for breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Young cooks will learn to crack eggs, mix ingredients into batter, and cook up savory creations like omelets and frittatas, pancakes, waffles, granolas and much more. Every child will receive a chef’s hat and take home copies of each week’s recipe.

Best of Summer Camp ~ in the Winter!
Wednesdays, 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Every week, 3-4 year olds will enjoy theme-activities inspired by Habitot's popular summer camp series. One week, we might be building a space station, investigating Mars Mud and learning about the solar system, the next week we might be back on the farm, churning butter, square dancing and dyeing wool.
