COOKING CLASSES: Kids Dish Up Food and Fun! | @SimonMalls #KidgitsClub

My family has been on a lookout for kids cooking classes and events lately since we have discovered what a great learning tool and family activity it is.  I found out that several of our local Simon Malls, are holding their annual Super Duper Lil Chefs events.
Simon shopping centers dish up food, fun and learning experiences

The hands-on atmosphere of Simon Kidgits Club Super Duper Lil Chefs will engage both parents and children in exploring the endless imaginative possibilities of pairing creativity with cuisine. The event menu offers a variety of food-focused festivities ranging from cooking demonstrations to etiquette lessons and craft-making with meal items. The event is free and open to the public, however Simon Kidgits Club Members will receive a free Kidgits pizza plate and pizza cutter, while supplies last!

Whip up some fun with food at the following Simon Malls locations:


Westminster Mall

Additionally, Simon Kidgits Club® is teaming up with Lil Chefs presenting sponsor Warner Bros. Home Entertainment for the launch of Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure, coming to DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital HD Tuesday, May 20. The super-cute, talented two-some of Sophia Grace and Rosie sang and danced their way to stardom on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and now families can see the little, lovable performers in their first original live-action movie. As part of the celebration, children can participate in a Tiara decorating craft.

“Simon Kidgits Club provides the community ongoing opportunities to enhance the shopping experience at Simon properties,” said Jayne Stilson, assistant vice president of business development for Simon Brand Ventures, the business-to-consumer division of Simon Property Group. “Lil Chefs events are designed to immerse families in discovering that enjoying food doesn’t have to be limited to meal time and make visiting the mall an even more memorable experience.”

The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3 to 8. Since 2003, the Simon Kidgits Club has kept children and parents alike amused with various events and activities while providing incentives for club members, such as special offers, rewards and games. Simon Kidgits Club programs have engaged more than 1.8 million parents and kids since its inception.

In Los Angeles, parents can also check out the progress on the complete transformation of Del Amo Fashion Center, which includes the brand new garden-like Patio Cafes dining pavilion, as well as the upcoming creation of a new state-of-the-art two-level mall, new entrances, landscaping, flooring and lighting upgrades, enhancements to the ambiance in the outdoor lifestyle village and a new Nordstrom slated to open in Fall 2015.
