Kids Fun

Posted: Updated:

Looking for something cheap to keep the kids entertained this summer? 7s Belkys Nerey takes us to some unique day camps for kids in tonight's Style File.

If the kids are already using the word bored, give them another word to snap them out of it: Chocolate.

Sophia: "My favorite chocolate is dark chocolate. It just has this taste that I really, really love."

This summer, Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Davie is offering chocolate camps for kids. I mean, where was this kind of camp when I was growing up?

Samantha Cohen-Owner, Schakolad Chocolate Factory: "We do chocolate camps Monday through Friday. We have two sessions one at 11 and another at two."

Chocolatiers will first give kids a history lesson on chocolate.

Samantha Cohen: "We'll tell you where chocolate comes from and you can actually taste the cocoa pod."

Sophia: "I learned that chocolate grows from trees."

Then they'll get a lesson in making and tasting.

Samantha Cohen: "They'll actually dip different items. Sometimes it's fruit, sometimes it graham crackers or pretzels."

The new chocolate connoisseurs will also decorate chocolate bars and take home goodie bags filled with what they made.

Kevin: "It says, 'Eat Me.'"

The real sweet spot the camp only costs $9.75 per child.

Ellie Carballo: "We get to sit down on the couch, enjoy some coffee and an ice cream while the children are entertained."

The popular Bunnie Cakes in Wynwood is hosting a summer cooking class for aspiring, young bakers from 11 to noon every Thursday.

Marlo Planas: "My oldest son wants to go to culinary school one day he says. I thought it would be a fun activity for them."

And since Bunnie Cakes is a vegan bakery, the class is a great option for those kids with allergies.

Mariana Cortez: "Everything we are going to make during the cooking class is vegan. So no eggs, no dairy. Nothing contains wheat or any nuts."

During the hour-long class, kids learn the art of measuring and mixing ingredients for brownies or cookies.

Mariana Cortez: "They are going to mix all the ingredients with their hands themselves, so that's the fun part. We walk to the kitchen and we bake them."

While their goodies are baking, the little chefs will decorate cupcakes to eat there or take home.

Kaleb: "We ate too much icing."

See mom and dad, aren't you glad all this mess isn't happening in your kitchen?

Belkys Nerey: "The cooking class at Bunnie Cakes costs $30. The classes start July 10 and run through the end of August."

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
