KIDS & MOMMY & ME COOKING CLASSES
These hands-on classes will boost your child’s confidence and willingness to help outin the kitchen as we have fun learning about and making recipes with seasonal ingredients.
Kids Cooking Classes are ideal for ages 5-12. An adult chaperone is required to stay during the class, but we'll leave the cooking to the kids! There is no fee for the adult chaperone.
Mommy & Me Classes are ideal for ages 2-5 and will require a little help from Mom or Day! These hands on classes will give your budding chef a great stat in the kitchen. There is no fee for the adult.
fun thyme cooking birthday party
Whip up loads of fun for your child's next birthday with our Fun Thyme Cooking Parties, which are offered year-round inside our Cooking Classroom in the Country Store. Your child and guests will delight in making their own meal.
Each child will have fun and learn some kitchen basics as he or she makes a meal (a main dish, side dish and smoothie) and decorates a cupcake. Parties are appropriate for 4 to 12 year olds and are two hours long - the first hour the children cook and the second hour is for eating and opening gifts. Eckert's provides post-card invitations. Parties can accommodate up to 25 children. Food and soft drinks may be ordered for adults. Reservations must be made at least 10 days prior to the party. For more information or to make reservations please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (618) 233-0513 x 1977.

We've sweetened the deal even more!! When the Custard Shop is open (May-October) kids also receive a free kids cone or kids sundae with an adult purchase. Win, win!
