Cooking and Crafts

The Cooking and Crafts program focuses on experiencing history through vintage recipes and crafts of the past. The themes and activities vary; so attend one or all. Topics may include- butter, ice pops, ice cream, mini pies, or hot cakes. If the stove or oven is used it is by the instructor. The children only combine ingredients. The ratio is 10:1 participant: staff with the additional help of 1-3 volunteers. Taught by Ms. Alison.

Each class stands on its own, so attend one, all, or several.
