Want a fun activity for your kids while teaching them how to be good neighbors? We love this easy 3-ingredient recipe for peanut butter cookies that we are baking in our Kolcraft kitchen and bringing to neighbors. You can do this at home with your kids and teach them not only valuable lessons in the kitchen, but also the importance of checking in on elderly neighbors, family or even nursing home residents. Many communities have special outreach programs where you can visit residents in nursing homes or even “adopt a grandparent” in a nursing home. It’s a great way to teach your children valuable life lessons!
Join us in bringing kids into the kitchen and giving homemade goodness to someone who needs it most.
