Our school is starting a new "Club Day." I am in charge of the Cooking Club. We will meet once a month, and I will have about 10 students in grades 3-5. I was told that I didn't actually "have" to cook every time! I was hoping that you guys could help me out and give me some suggestions!

October - Halloween?
November -
December - decorate Christmas cookies
Jan
Feb Valentine's
March
April
May - dirt cups with artificial flower

I cook once or twice monthly with my class. My plan is to make a meal or food that relates to a story we're reading.

I will also do little treats for the holidays.

We are making some easy things, that haven't even turned out so easy! For example, we made deviled and hard boiled eggs after reading about when Ramona smashed an egg on her head in our read aloud. It turned out to take a lot of time for them! Our first cooking project was fruit salad, and I made the analogy about us all being different, but when mixed together, we're great!

I also am having the kids keep a recipe book. It's just a folder that we keep the recipes in. However, for my 2nd and 3rd graders, that's turning out to be a lot- the copying is a challenge for them, especially the second graders, but they will get it eventually! So part of the time is spent copying the recipes, since we can't all cook at the same time. I take them in groups.

November- Turkey roll ups? Maybe they could even have cranberry sauce or something like that in them? I bet there is a recipe for this. Also, it would be easy to make. They could do "pinwheels" and those would be cute.

For the dirt cups, I think they usually have gummy worms on them, not a flower, but the flower would be cute!

Unfortunately, in my class we have the following allergies: gluten, peanuts, soy, dairy, and then my asperger's boy is on a special diet and can't have any sugar or artificial coloring! And we are STILL managing to cook!

treat is to dip Nutter Butter cookies in white almond bark. Put mini chocolate chips on for eyes. They are really cute ghosts.

We cook once a week in our class and we try to do a lot of fun themed items as well.

November - Pilgrim/Indian Trail Mix (Great way to integrate math as well, have them pick 20 pretzels, 10 M&M's, etc. and combine.
January - We have soup month! We love to make taco soup to warm up on a cold day. I found a recipe for macaroni and cheese soup my students loved last year.
March - Green food day. Bring in grapes, celery, honeydew, green apples, etc.
**For your dirt cups, I saw a cute idea to put a lollipop in them and that is the flower part** Just a thought.

there is a book, from scholastic called Book Cooks. It has recipes that are kid friendly that match book titles. Maybe it is still in print.

I second Book Cooks. They have some cute book-related snacks to make that don't require an oven. I got a copy on Half.com for a couple bucks used.

Thanks for all the ideas! My problem is the time constraint ... only one day a month for about one hour. That's not long to do any "cooking!" Keep the ideas coming, though. I'm loving it!!!!
