Sassafras is a child company that is a whole lot of fun with several very cute products. They started out in a home in 1977 with a deep dish pizza pan kit. Their largest focus is kids baking products and they have so many to choose from! They focus on having a great tasting product and that the directions are easy enough for children. I just love the company and I think if you take a browse around their website at http://www.sassafrasenterprises.com/ you will too!
I also have their Princess Magic Cookie Kit, which is even cuter in person. This is the perfect gift for a little princess. The dough magically turns pink even! The Fairy Princess Magic Cookie Kit is the winner of the 2006 Preferred Choice Award. The kit contains cookie mix that turns pink, pink icing, fairy dust sprinkles, cookie cutter, and a fairy wand. They offer a Wizard Magic Cookie Kit that turns blue for the little boys.There are many, many different types of baking kits to choose from that are appropriate for both little boys and girls. The kit comes with a very cute little poem to go along with the cookies that makes it oh so special. I am always searching for fun activities to do with my little ones and baking is always a sure winner. (Sadly, my digital camera still hasn't been found but I did take some pics with my camcorder. The quality isn't great but hopefully you can still see how pretty they are). We had so much fun baking these cookies and little one shocked me with her ability to mix and cut out the cookies. It was too cute an experience, but still a learning one. When the dough turned from white to pink, this gave us an opportunity to discuss colors. She was very excited when this happened, explaining: "It's pink! Mommy, It's pink now!" Also, it is a fabulous sensory experience kneading the dough between fingers. When little one was helping to roll out the dough and cut out the star shapes, this worked on her fine motor skills. BTW, stars are Zhana's favorite shape so she is always oh so happy when anything involves the star shape. When we added the icing and sprinkles, this was a little art project too! Don't you think this would be a great kit to provide for birthday parties, girl scout meetings, or ect?

Mix, mix, mix...
After the cooking was completed, she has decided the container makes the perfect purse and has been carrying it on her arm.
Here's another fun kit...
In addition to the baking kits, they offer several child baking centered tools. One of my favorites is the The Little Cook Apron and Silicone Set.
They have adorable umbrellas such as this Piggy Umbrella.
There are also several garden products for our little ones; These are a few I particuarly like:
Deluxe Gardener in Training, Duck Watering Can, and the Leaf Tree Swing.
There are also products for decorating your little ones room such as these cute horse bookends.
Don't you agree that this is a wonderful store? They are being added to my list of favorite stores.
