Virtual Vittles Zoom Cooking Program for Kids
Join Ms. Robin in the kitchen as we make some virtual vittles together! Each month, you can learn how to make some tasty, no-bake treats found online or in the collection of cookbooks for kids here at Mentor Public Library. This program will be a live Zoom production and will require registration in order to receive the zoom link. Each participant will be required to pick up the ingredients either in the children’s department, or if you prefer, you can also pick up in our drive thru, (please call ahead to let us know so we can ensure that the items are waiting for you.)
The next session will be held Monday, December 14 at 4:00 PM. This program is for children ages 7-12. Registration is required. Lets make something yummy, together! Grown-up help is welcome.
On Thursday, December 10 at 7:00 PM it’s time to get cozy with some good stories and a tasty mug cake treat! Starting December 5, registered kids can pick up a mug cake kit to take home. Then join us on December 10th while we make our cakes and enjoy some stories. Open to ages 4 – 8. Registration is required and starts here November 26.
