What I love about the recipe is that it is fun!  And kids love fun.  The fact that kids can have fun whilst learning about healthy foods and don’t have to go near any hot or sharp equipment is awesome!

Craft Game

I like that you have to put the game together, glue is also included.  You then add the carrot to the wheel and spin it, whatever it lands on you move there or do a fun activity!

Elmers Disapearing Purple Washable School Glue

Elmers is one of my favorite brands of glue for kids, it’s also fun to have the purple color that disappears!  This is to be used with the game mentioned above, but ofcourse you have plenty of glue left over for future projects!

Sweet Basil Grow Kit

Mini grow kits are so cute and easy to use!  My son already has a little mini green house in the back yard so we will add this too it and see how it grows!

Mini Cups and a Mini Bucket!

Oh my!  How cute are those little flower cups and the little bucket!  I’m pretty sure Dylan will be trying to stuff his cars in the mini bucket after he is done with his recipe!

Cookie Cutter

Believe it or not, I do not have a cookie cutter.  I usually shape them by hand or buy the prepackaged mixes.  Now Dylan and I can make butterfly shaped food and I think I want more of cookie cutters now!

Butterfly making kit

This was so much fun for Dylan! Ofcourse his coloring skills aren’t quite up to scratch yet but he had lots of fun making it and flying it around the house!

Weekly Snack and Exercise chart

Why have I never thought of this?  This is a great way to keep track of what your kid is eating and how they burn off energy!

The Fun

As you can see from the last photo to the right, the apron and chef hat is sooo cute and Dylan had so much fun!

The Verdict

My Max Pack has a fantastic curation of items for preschoolers to enjoy!  My son has a thing with textures, some foods he won’t eat and teaching him to actually play with his food is a good thing, it gets him used to the textures and gives him the courage to try out new food types!

I love that there are lots of activities included and the tools to create them, it makes learning fun!  Max, who is the character on each box is also a great role model.  Children watch what others do, they learn from other children and look up to good role models.  Max is Genius!
