If your kid loves to cook, here's a great deal through Groupon. Cucina Bambini is offering any cooking class ($40 value or less, for $12 today only. Maybe it's a cupcake workshop, or making sushi. Or the kids can make pizza during a "parents night out" - cheap babysitting! They also offer adult classes - like Mom's Night Out (BYOB!).
Cucina Bambini is in San Jose. Check out their website where they have a description and calendar of classes.
Then head over to Groupon and get the deal here. The deal is on the San Jose page. If the San Francisco page pulls up, go to the top to "visit more cities" and click there. Then find San Jose and click on it. The deal is good today only. For the Frisco Kids reader who says my Groupon link doesn't work for her, just Google Groupon and follow the insturctions in this paragraph.
Small print: Groupon is a Frisco Kids affiliate. If you are a first-time purchaser using my link, I'll get a small credit to use on a future Groupon. It costs you nothing more to use my link versus the generic one - onsider it as your way of supporting Frisco Kids.
