The York School

Today we had a field trip with the York School and it was a great success! The children were learning about the digestion system, so they made art projects based on our digestive systems. In the kitchen we learned how to make hummus and protein bars from scratch. In the Seasons Studio the children learned about the importance of our “core” and participated in exercises that utilized their core strength.

On Sunday we hosted a Sugar Cookie & Decorating Workshop. Our registrants learned how to make sugar cookies and royal icing from scratch. Everyone got a chance to decorate their halloween sugar cookie shapes and they all made such beautiful cookies. It was such a great way to spend Sunday afternoon! We will be hosting some holiday craft/baking workshops in November so stay tuned for more information on those!

We had our first Sunday Workshop yesterday and it was such fun. Each participant made their own loaf of pumpkin bread and a jar of butternut squash soup. The smells that filled our kitchen were amazing and such a great activity to do on a rainy Fall afternoon. Here are some photographs from the day.
