How to keep bored kids entertained in the kitchen

 

It’s that stage in the holidays where the kids start moping around, complaining that they’re bored, and parents are running short of ideas.

Well, this book might help. Mason Jar Nation, whilst not purely food or drink idea based, could provide a few hours entertainment for the kids. It could end up producing something for dinner, or something to carry to a picnic, or some other craft projects, although these are probably more suitable for older kids.

And much older if it’s the Pineapple Vodka!

 

Mason Jar Nation - great cookbook gift for a food lover with kids to entertain

 

Of course it’s all been about the Mason jar, which you may or may not have hanging around the house. Personally I think the trend has probably reached a peak, and you could do many of these with any fairly robust glass jar you have hanging around the house.

I mean, if you’re going to try making homemade butter with them (which would be great fun) then then the butter isn’t going to know it’s being churned in a Mason jar or a leftover jam jar, just as long as the lid is tight fitting.

A nice little book, not worth the full price though but there are options on Amazon from £4.73.

I love the Fab site, and I happened to spot this cocktail shaker:

 

The Mason Shaker

 

I love a Mason jar, such a design classic and gorgeous looking in every environment. Not to mention hugely versatile, so why not get them earning their keep with a touch of cocktail shaking? Love them.

UPDATE: Sadly Fab aren’t trading in the UK at the moment, but still going in the US if someone can have these delivered for you.
