Super Duper Mini Chefs event set for mall

DULUTH - If your kids' idols span from Emeril Lagasse to Rachael Ray, bring them to the mall.

Gwinnett Place Mall and Simon Kidgits Club are hosting a Super Duper Mini Chefs event for kids and parents with hands-on activities, food and fun.

The event will begin with a pasta craft station from Barilla Piccolini and a Mr. Potato Head Mix N' Match activity from Playskool. Free giveaways and coupons will be included. Qubo, a children's television network, will also be there providing healthy recipes and additional giveaways.

Simon Kidgits Club members attending the event will receive a free Fruit & Veggie Playset and Kids Placemat while supplies last. Families attending are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the Atlanta Community Food Bank to support those in need.

Super Duper Mini Chefs will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Belk Wing of the mall. The event is free for all parents and children. Registration for the Kidgits Club is available at Simon Guest Services during mall hours or online at www.simonkidgitsclub.com.
