This giveaway is now closed.
Look at these: gift kits for your budding pasty chef (or chemist) from my friends at Zebra Mix. These kits are a great way to involve your child in your holiday baking bonanza or as stocking stuffers for post-holiday family fun.
I’ve said this before on this blog, I’m culinarily challenged. When BigB was in preschool, one of the other moms volunteered to bake cookies with the kids. When he was asked what type of cookies he made at home he replied – without flinching – “My mom buys our cookies” (my defender). But that was before I met Lisa and Brian and their excellent, educational Zebra Mix kid’s baking products.
Zebra Mix is the result of these creative parents realizing that baking is a touch point for math, science and reading and an opportunity to teach important life skills, critical thinking and exercise creativity. And on top of all that, your child gets to manage an entire project from start to finish! As a mom of two children who are four years apart in age, I can vouch that the Zebra Mix Safari Baking Mats easily engage both of my children at the same time – which is fairly remarkable. And the end result is a tasty dessert which the whole family can enjoy.
See below for full details on what each of these kits contains.
The Putumayo Kids ‘A Family Christmas’ CD includes familiar favorites such as ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ and ‘Frosty The Snowman’, but all with a Putumyao twist which you and your children will enjoy. As the folks at Putumayo Kids say: “Few things evoke more holiday spirit than festive Christmas songs. On A Family Christmas, Putumayo offers a collection of yuletide favorites by a fascinating array of artists that every family is sure to enjoy while trimming the tree or sharing a holiday dinner.”
You can read more about the artists and music on this cd on the Putumayo Kids website.
I’ve got five Putumayo Kids CDs and five ZebraMix Gift Kits to give away bundled together for an afternoon of family fun in a gift set worth $45.
The Zebra Mix Rainbow Drop Cookie Kit includes: all the organic and natural dry ingredients to stir up tasty treats; just add fresh eggs and butter. All products certified 70% organic by QAI. The kit is packed up in a fun, reusable tin lunch box.
With the Zebra Mix Flour Power Cookie Kit, your children will be able to create beautiful dragonfly & flower sugar cookies using our kid-sized rolling pin, cookie cutters and yellow and white icing. The kit includes organic sugar cookie & icing mix, sunshine yellow all-natural food coloring, yellow silicone coated yellow rolling pin, dragonfly and flower cookie cutters and Safari Baking Map.
My favorite is the Zebra Mix Cupcake Studio Kit. I need my boys to apply their considerable talents to creating masterpiece cupcakes using the frosting pen, swirl design cupcake papers and all-natural yellow food coloring and decorating dots. The kit includes organic cupcake & frosting mix, sunshine yellow all-natural nonpareils, yellow all-natural food coloring, reusable decorating bottle, designer cupcake papers and Safari Baking Map.
