As we near the end of our week and are greatly anticipating the time we will spend with our families over Winter Break, we decided to spread a little festive cheer in Rainey Room today by baking cookies together!
To familiarize ourselves with the ingredients being used, we first took our best guesses about what each ingredient was and what we thought it might be used for.
We also took a closer look at some of the baking tools we would be using.
A small group of five children volunteered to be our cookie bakers today.
We plan to enjoy these tomorrow for a special treat on our last day of school!
Time to coat the cookies with cinnamon and sugar!
Some fun cookie shapes were created during the process, including "dog bones"!
Hugh - a dog bone for Zuzu.
Cape - Who is Zuzu?
Lily - Hugh’s dog.
Cape - Can you also make one for Sweetie?
Hugh - Sure! When it’s my next turn.
Down to the kitchen to bake.
Can you feel the excitement?!
And finally, caring for our environment.
We're looking forward to enjoying a delicious cookie treat tomorrow before our holiday Chapel!
This week, Tucker Room friends were exploring making their own paper. We haven't revisited this process since our Brown Room year! They kindly offered to share some of their paper pulp with us so we were able to make our own paper this week as well. Thanks Tucker friends!
