Junior foodies will love these hands-on experiences…

If you’re looking for wholesome ways to entertain and educate your kids during spring break, bring out their inner masterchef with a range of cooking classes and gourmet activities for your smalls.

Here are three fun cooking classes for children in Dubai.

Thai Tots Cooking Kit


Ages: three and up, with adult supervision

With four weeks of school holidays looming, the launch of Fuchsia Urban Thai’s new cooking kits for kids could not have come at a better time. Order the Thai Tots Cooking Kits via Deliveroo, and your juniors will be whipping up sweet and sour noodles with mixed vegetables or Thai-spiced falafel in no time. With a bit of help from Mum, What’s On’s own junior chef took them out for a spin over the weekend, and we loved the healthy, delicious dishes they created. Each kit serves two to three kids, depending on their appetite.
