Kids cooking workshop


At Decorati we believe, early intervention through training taste buds and establishing good eating habits, healthy eating and cooking skills is vital for children. If children are exposed to a variety of foods and what it does to their body from a young age they will go into adulthood with more positive behaviour, body image and habits. By learning about healthy foods and drinks, how to prepare foods and cook with foods, children will boost their confidence and feel a sense of accomplishment as they say “I made it myself”.

In our workshops, children will have the opportunity to learn practical skills and experiences about what to cook and how to cook it.

Children will have the opportunity to develop in so many areas, such as:


  • Socially/emotionally– each activity will help children develop pride and confidence in their skills and abilities. 
  • Physically – Chopping, spreading, stirring, pouring and mixing are all cooking skills that help strengthen and develop small muscle control and eye-hand coordination. Children will build knowledge on correct handwashing and how to wash fruits and vegetables.
  • Language Development – Children will learn to follow steps and develop new words and concepts through discussions. 
  • Cognitively – Cooking inspires children’s curiosity, thinking, and problem-solving abilities. Children will develop maths and science skills through measuring, pouring, using spoons and scales.  Children will learn about different types of foods and how much to eat on a daily basis.

Our workshops are conducted by Decorati Owner –  Carla who is a Qualified Early Childhood Educator with Working with Children Check, First Aid Certificate and Food Safety Certification. Team assistants are also on board to help run a smooth workshop.
