Earlier we posted our Lemonade Stand for Charity — well here is another idea you can have fun with this summer with your kids. Host a bake sale for a local charity in your community. Currently at my job we are hosting a food drive for Second Harvest. Second Harvest Feeding America, has food banks throughout the whole country, and are always excited to hear how you want to help out. With our drive I called my local Second Harvest and asked about the different programs they have and if we can pick one of their programs that we would like our money and food going to, they were more than helpful and even offered to pick up everything after our Food Drive. Some people feel uneasy donating to big charitable organizations so I always use the resources the charity organization provide on their website and check where all their money is going and about their organization. So when people ask something – you can tell them information on the organization.
You can host a bake sale to help raise money for your food drive. I have my children involved and we baked tons of cookies to take to work and for our family and friends this weekend to sale. You can dress up your Bake Goods with these fun Free Bake Sale Printables brought to you by The TomKat Studio.
Now for the Yummy stuff! Tonight I made for the first time Lazy Cake Cookies that I found on I’m A Lazy Mom Website. They came out so good and unbelievably easy, you must try! Let me remind you I had my kids help, so pouring the cake mix and few ingredients they handled very well with little mess! I suggest putting your batter on a greased cookie sheet. I found it easier to cut into the Cake to make cookie bars that I could individually wrap up.
Lazy Chocolate Chip Cake Cookie Bars:
1 box yellow or white cake mix
2 eggs beaten
5 Tbs. melted butter
2 Cups chocolate chips
Mix together, spread on a greased cookie sheet pan and bake at 350 for 20 min! The recipe made about 30 bars. Have fun!
