Mini Chef Class at Ray's Splash Planet

Hubby was gone the last 6 days and I'll be honest, it was a little rough. Little Man was not himself, and I was lonely for grown-up conversation. Hubby got back home late Tuesday evening and decided he would come with us to Mini Chef class at Ray's Splash Planet. There are several preschool programs offered there, including Shorty Sporty, Sponge Painting, and Theme Parties, and we have taken Mini Chef class three times now. During our last two times we made twice-baked potatoes and stuffed hot dogs. This time we made Dirt Pudding. We used Jello Instant Vanilla Pudding, crushed Oreo cookies, and then gummy worms (EEEWWW). The kids had a great time crushing Oreo cookies, as you can see in the video. The class is also educational since the kids learn about measuring and following recipes.

While the pudding sat in the refrigerator the kids colored. And then it was time for them to eat.

Besides the fact that Mini Chef class is itself so much fun, afterwards admission to the waterpark is included in the cost of the class (which costs $6/child with the parent in free). While it can be a little hard to keep the little ones from staring longingly at the waterpark during cooking class (because the room the class is held in has windows overlooking the pool), it's well worth it. Ray's Splash Planet has a couple of lap lanes, water basketball area, a lazy river, a 3-story water slide, a current pool, and the below splash and slide area.

As you can see we had a great time!
