Many families are savoring these final weeks of summer. This might include getting in last trips to a favorite swimming hole, evening picnics, a family hike or special outings best enjoyed in the sun. Why not include a fun cooking project with your kids on your summer “bucket list”?

ChopChop Magazine: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Kids is filled with easy, delicious and kid-tested recipes perfect for inspiring kids to cook real food. Kids will love making these cool and easy-to-make Frozen Fruit-Salad Pops. Better than store-bought popsicles, kids will have fun making their own custom popsicles with their favorite fruit!
