1. Before the cooking activity (steps for the adult)

  • Wash the blueberries.
  • Prepare the oatmeal by adding 330 mL (1 1/3 cups) of water to 160 mL (2/3 cup) of rolled oats. Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes or until the oatmeal is cooked. It is best to prepare the oatmeal and store it in the refrigerator the night before so that it is cold for the cooking activity.

  • Pour the maple syrup into a small pitcher.

2. Handing out ingredients and cooking utensils

  • Give each child their ingredients and cooking utensils.
