Tips for cooking with Rad-Kids:

 Explore ginger using your 5 senses! Discuss the differences between fresh ginger, ground ginger, pickled ginger, and crystalized ginger.

 Kids can measure, mix, fold, and flip. 

 Discover the folding method together! Have kids lightly cut vertically through the mixture and fold in the sides.  This method avoids over mixing ingredients, thus keeping pancakes fluffy and delicious.

 Create an edible gift for friends by layering the dry ingredients in a glass jar, then attaching the recipe and a personal note with raffia ribbon.
