Weekly Kids in the Kitchen Facebook Live

Join Emily Marrison and her children, ages 10 and 12, every Thursday in April at 11 a.m. for Kids in the Kitchen – Facebook Live. The Coshocton County Kids in the Kitchen program provides a great opportunity for you and your children to learn how to make kid-friendly recipes, together.

Time conflict? No worries, you can also watch and download the recorded programs and recipes from Ohio State University Extension’s Coshocton County Facebook page at facebook.com. Recipes thus far have included Carrot Cake Pancakes with Maple Cream Cheese Topping, Creamy Peanut Butter Dip, White Chicken Chili, Double Corn Bread, Microwaveable Omelet in a Mug and Chocolate Mug Cake.

Like all of us, school-aged children have been experiencing tremendous change over the past few weeks. Establishing and sticking to a routine is challenging for any family juggling school and possibly working from home. This virtual program could be just the thing to give your children more confidence in the kitchen and get some new healthy snack and meal ideas.

We hope you’ll join us live! Again, programs are every Thursday in April (2, 9, 16, 23 and 30). Check coshocton.osu.edu to view recorded programs.

Sewing Face Masks for Medical Professionals

Looking for a great way for your youth (or you!) to practice your sewing skills? There has been a recent call for home sewists to make face masks for our medical professionals who may be running low on supplies. There are many videos and options out there. A video for a great and easy design that allows the wearer to insert a liner can be found here. There is another style of mask shown below. Sewing face masks would be a great community service project and you can include it as a citizenship/leadership activity in your project book! You can pass these masks along to any medical professional or EMT you know.

You can also mail them to the following address for distribution to Central Ohio hospitals and facilities:

Jennifer Andrade

PO Box 141415

Columbus, OH 43214

Check out more information on Facebook in the group “Operation Face Mask” for more videos, patterns, as well as local specific mask needs.

Special Note: Many of the patterns call for thin elastic to complete the masks. We know that isn’t something that everyone will have on hand for this project. We do NOT want you to go out shopping for this project. If you do not have elastic, you could make the mask that has a casing for the elastic so that elastic could be added later OR you could also make masks with fabric ties. Please continue to stay safe and healthy!
