renaissance-club-sport-aliso-viejoEmi and I were recently invited to attend a super fun kids event at Renaissance ClubSport. Located in Aliso Viejo, the club is Orange County’s premier health club. The club holds monthly “Kids in the Kitchen” cooking classes, designed for children ages 3 to 12, as part of their Kids’ World program. Classes and are taught by the club’s Executive Sous Chef and Sous Chef. Children in attendance got to experience a hands-on cooking lesson, in a small group setting. My daughter loved learning how to prepare apple turnovers and some very special chocolate chip cookies. She also enjoyed getting to use her hands to mix the ingredients. It was something exciting and different than just using an electric mixer, like we do at home.

While the children were waiting for their culinary creations to bake in the club’s kitchen, they got to enjoy listening to a story and color with friends in a cabana.

We also received a brief tour of the entire Kids’ World area of the club, which is its own enclosed facility within the club. It’s a safe stimulating childcare environment for children 6 weeks-12 years old. There are so many fun activity choices for children with inside and outside areas to play.
