Les enfants font la cuisine!

During the past two weeks Emilia organized different cooking activities for the children.

On Wednesday December 8 the Pre-K and K-1 classes made cookies. They learned the names of the ingredients and helped Emilia to knead the dough. Then, they rolled it out and used cookie cutters to make cookies of various shapes: hands, feet, stars, lobsters, moose, etc. When they were cooked, the children did a wonderful job decorating them with colored frosting. It was hard not to eat them right away...

On Wednesday December 15 the children of grades 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 made lunch for everyone at school! Emilia taught them how to make pizza dough. They added their favorite toppings and Emilia cooked them for lunch. Some of them were even shaped into hearts! For dessert, we had the chocolate cupcakes they had decorated. Everything turned out to be delicious, and everyone had a lot of fun!
