It might be fun to see how that goes besides keeping him or her happily occupied during the holidays. Who knows, you might end up picking a few pointers yourself. Here's a list of cooking classes for kids in and around Melbourne that takes a fun approach to the serious art of cooking.

Anna's Kitchen
