Top Tips for cooking with kids
Crushing the Oreos is a great task for kids! If you are worried about the bag breaking from over enthusiastic crushers, you can always put the first bag into a second bag.
If you have multiple children, consider having a different child help with each stage- making the vanilla pudding and crushing the Oreos, adding the Oreos, cool whip, and chocolate pudding, and piping and decorating the mousse.
