Kamalei Children's Centre makes chocolate balls at the Cook's Cooking School

Children at the Kamalei Children's Centre put their chef hats on to make a a little box of love for someone special.

On May 9, 24 children became chefs when they made bliss balls to gift to someone special in their life.

Mothers were a popular choice to receive the delicious treats in a box decorated by the children.

Kamalei Children's Centre director Anne-Maree Wulff said the partnership with the Cook’s Cooking School was a great learning experience for the children.

“It’s nice for them to know it’s not just processed food that’s available to them,” Ms Wulff said.

“They can make something from scratch and still enjoy it.

“It’s about mixing maths with science.”

The Kamalei Children's Centre has worked with the Cook’s Cooking School numerous times over the years.

They have made spinach pasta, pizza, hot cross buns, muffins, bread, damper and emu balls.

Ms Wulff said the children most enjoyed making the pasta.

“They made the pasta from scratch and rolled it themselves,” she said.

A messy aftermath from the chocolate ball cooking lesson proved just how much fun the Kamalei Children's Centre had.
