(01/02/16) BATON ROUGE, La. – Kids can decorate and make their own Valentine sugar cookie box and fill it with candy at What’s Cooking... @Burden on Feb. 13.

Designed for children from 4 to 12 years old, the program will be held from 10 a.m. until noon at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden.

“This will be a great opportunity for kids to have fun creating their own Valentine treats,” said Jeff Kuehny, resident director of the Botanic Gardens.

The activity will be conducted by Jeanne Mancuso, pastry chef at the Culinard Culinary Institute of Virginia College.

What’s Cooking... @ Burden will be held in conjunction with StoryTime, an activity for children ages 3 to 8 from 9 to 11 a.m. StoryTime features storybook readings and imagination-themed activities every half hour. The last reading begins at 10:30. StoryTime is sponsored by the Junior League of Baton Rouge.

Admission for What’s Cooking is $10 per child and includes all materials. Participation is limited to 50 children, so registration is required by calling 225-763-3990. A limited number of take-home kits will be available for purchase at $10 each for people unable to attend.

Admission to StoryTime is free.
