Experiment in the kitchen with National Geographic Kids (#giveaway)

I’m a fair-weather outdoor parent. In the spring and summer, sure, let’s go to the park or hang out in the backyard! In the fall and winter, not so much. That means that I need to have a whole new set of tricks up my sleeve and thanks to National Geographic Kids Try This! and National Geographic Kids Cookbook, I think I do!


We have a good collection of National Geographic Kids books and they are always fun for my daughters to look at by themselves and fun to read. The photographs are full colour and full of details. I appreciate that in Try This! they tell you how long the experiment will take so you can judge if it’s something that you have enough time and attention to spend on it. The book is split into sections based on theme (plants, machines, reactions to name just a few) so it’s fun to find a topic that is interesting to the kids and go from there.

The National Geographic Kids Cookbook has a very unique layout: instead of breaking it down by course, it’s a calendar! Running from January to December, each month has recipes, food facts, cooking and prep tips, even crafts and party ideas. There is a focus on the environment and how to act in a ‘green’ manner. You can hear more in Cookbook author Barton Seaver’s audio interviews with Insight Daily Radio. I’m hoping that my at-times picky 5 year old might be tempted to try some new things if she can see what the end result will look like, since she loves to help me out in the kitchen!


TWO lucky readers will each win a copy of National Geographic Kids Try This! and National Geographic Kids Cookbook!
