To make these tasty mini falafel burgers, you will need the following ingredients:

Getting kids involved in preparing these mini falafel burgers can be a fun and educational experience! Here are a few ideas to get them engaged:

  1. Mixing and Mashing: Let the kids help mix and mash the ingredients together in the bowl. This can be a messy but enjoyable activity for them.
  2. Shaping the Burgers: Show them how to shape the falafel mixture into small patties using their hands. You can also use cookie cutters to create fun shapes.

  4. Assembling the Burgers: Let the kids assemble their own mini burgers with their choice of toppings. This can be a creative activity that allows them to personalise their meal.
  5. Setting the Table: Have the kids help set the table with plates, napkins, and utensils. They can also prepare a simple side dish or salad to accompany the burgers.
  6. Cleaning Up: Teach the importance of cleaning up after cooking by involving them in washing dishes and tidying up the kitchen.
