After the hustle and bustle of daily life, food is often something that we centre our days around and look forward to as a pick-me-up. Aside from nourishing our bodies, it can play a key role in crafting fond memories with friends, family, and our community. Like a photograph that captures a moment in time, delicious tastes, aromas, and textures can leave their own kind of imprint on us. Cooking meals and learning recipes are pillars that play a key part in many cultures and communities. They carry rich traditions and histories that assist in forming who we are as individuals while also connecting us to one another. Whether it’s baking grandma’s signature cookies or gathering with friends for a potluck, wholesome foods help to build nostalgic memories. Below are some easy and fun activities that you can enjoy with your family and loved ones!

Family Baking Together on Family Day

  • Make sure you meticulously plan your grocery list. Going back to the store for a forgotten ingredient can be an annoying time waster!
  • These ideas are all “kid friendly”, but make sure to be vigilant and ensure that kitchen safety is the top priority.
