Simon Property Group, Inc. (NYSE:SPG), a leading global retail real estate company, is stirring up tasty fun for families as Simon Kidgits Club Super Duper Lil ChefsSM makes its annual appearance at The Westchester on Saturday, June 7, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Lil Chefs events are being presented at approximately 100 Simon® shopping centers nationwide to get kids learning about the craft of cooking and having fun with food.
The hands-on atmosphere of Simon Kidgits Club Super Duper Lil Chefs will engage both parents and children in exploring the endless imaginative possibilities of pairing creativity with cuisine. The event menu offers a variety of food-focused festivities ranging from cooking demonstrations to etiquette lessons and craft-making with meal items. The event will include cupcake decorating by The Cupcake Guy, an Oreo cookie stacking contest, and kids can create their own trail mix and pasta necklaces.
Additionally, Simon Kidgits Club® is teaming up with Lil Chefs presenting sponsor Warner Bros. Home Entertainment for the launch of Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure, coming to DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital HD Tuesday, May 20. The super-cute, talented two-some of Sophia Grace and Rosie sang and danced their way to stardom on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and now families can see the little, lovable performers in their first original live-action movie.
Also as part of Lil Chefs events, kids are encouraged to help those in need by bringing a non-perishable food item to The Westchester to be donated to a local food bank.
