Just 4 Kidz

Just For Kidz .. This is one of my favourite pages on my website. I have kids of my own and have had a blast watching them create things they can eat.

This page is completely kid friendly so feel free to let them read with you.

If you are reading along with your parents and want to try some of these recipe's out, remember to have an adult with you when your ready to head for the kitchen! :)

Have fun and let me know how YOUR creations turned out!
