Sneak Peek: Ben’s Beginners Kids’ Cook Off 

This month we had a blast hosting Ben’s Beginners Kids Cook Off.

This “Chopped” style competition challenged three eight year olds to


1)  Follow a Bens Beginners recipe from Uncle Ben’s Rice, with a little help from mom or dad.


2)  Create your own, unique after school snack that doesn’t require an adult’s help.

We loved that this task helped our kids with math, reading, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity as we asked them to:

  • Follow Directions
  • Measure, count and weigh
  • Use right brain creativity with left brain quantitative reasoning

Full post to come.

Thanks to Uncle Ben’s Rice for providing the product and some equipment to make this Kids’ Cook Off possible!  Format, production, and all opinions are our own.
