The summer holidays are here and it’s time for fun! I’ve planned a host of activities for Roo and Tigger to enjoy throughout the summer as well as a couple of weeks spent with their Granny.
I’m joining in with Family Four Fun’s #FunFinds linky again this month as I love the opportunity to tell you about ‘fun finds’ I have seen throughout July.
Thomas & Friends™ Takes to the Sky with Virgin Atlantic
To mark the 70th anniversary of Thomas & Friends, families travelling with Virgin Atlantic on international routes throughout the month of August, will receive Thomas & Friends themed in-flight kids packs and will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the new Thomas & Friends movie, Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure
Annabel Karmel Family Cooking app
To inspire every generation to explore new foods and enjoy cooking, food guru Annabel Karmel has launched a state-of-the-art Family Cooking app which advances kids’ cooking skills whilst equipping busy parents with failsafe family recipes for every occasion.
A sequel to Annabel’s award-winning baby and toddler feeding app, Family Cooking for iPhone and iPad provides instant access to more than 120 simple recipes using a variety of readily available ingredients.
Easy to navigate and built with family routines in mind, the recipes are split into everyday meals, quick & easy, prep ahead, lunch boxes and light snacks, sweets and weekend get-togethers.
What makes this app even more special is its unique Kids Rule the Kitchen section – a special cooking course designed to feed children’s imaginations whilst teaching essential cooking skills.
Created for children as young as 4 years, there are 12 recipe challenges to complete. For each one, Annabel’s trainee chefs first take part in an interactive ‘drag and drop’ cookery lesson. They then put their virtual experience to the test by cooking the real thing.
From Bolognese Enchiladas to Tasty Stir Fry’s and Puff Pastry Pizzas, each completed recipe earns the child a new badge and the chance to photograph and share their masterpieces!
Additional app features include:
- My Planner lets you organise meals for the week ahead
- Recipe Notes so that you can personalise recipes
- Kitchen Timer which notifies you when that step is complete
- Interactive Speaker lets you to navigate a recipe by saying “next” to avoid touching the screen
- Conversion calculator enabling users to convert weights and measurements
