Liam’s preschool teacher arranged several optional field trips this spring for her students. The tours have been an absolute blast, and I have a feeling you Supermoms may want to schedule a few of these trips for your kids and their friends—no preschool required! What better way to break up your spring break stay-cation or to add variety to your summer activity list? Come along on our adventures with today’s post and another on Monday!
First up: Behind-the-scenes tour of Peter Piper Pizza! Did you know you can schedule a tour for you and your children at your local Peter Piper Pizza? Each child toured the kitchen facilities, made his own pizza and received a few tokens, a balloon and a drink—all for under $5. My boys and their friends LOVED it!
Upon our arrival the students saw first-hand how Peter Piper Pizza is made—from scratch, on location! (Who knew?) After standing in the very cold refrigerator and freezer to see where all the fresh ingredients are stored, the students were taken step by step through the dough process. The giant dough roller was an attention grabber. Our kids watched the Peter Piper Pizza employees run the dough through this roller again and again until the dough was dense and flat!
What kid doesn’t like cheese? Extra cheese for that matter! This giant cheese grater made quite the impression—it was so big, some of the accompanying younger siblings could have fit inside…
After the dough-making tour, each kid received a one-on-one lesson on proper hand washing techniques. The employees were careful to see each child was prepared to top his own pizza!
Topping our pizzas…
Watching our pizza cook…
Enjoying the fruits of their labor…
And, of course, some quality playtime after all that work!
