Our festive ExpressionWorks evening was a great success, full of stretching, costumes, music, baking and crafting! We did it all.
We welcomed our new friend and Support Volunteer Alona for the first time tonight. We were excited to have her dancing experience during our stretching warm up. Sophia led a fun partner stretch. We thank Julian for asking our stretch leaders how many stretches they will lead politely and professionally.
We continued with our communication circle to read our cookie recipe aloud with clarity, supporting our fellow leaders with thumbs up or down.
Our three teams managed the oven, batter creation and preparation on trays for oven.
A special thank you to Laura, Devon, Anna and Alanna-Stephanie for using the oven safety. We faced some kitchen fears together as a team and learned we can be safe using oven gloves and awareness of space. A big thanks to our dough-mixing group under the guidance of Gwen and Alex for using the hand blender too.
Jeffrey brought in his camp album to share some of his favourite memories. We also thank him for his help completing our 5-food group worksheet and naming “egg” as a protein!
We hope everyone enjoyed our cookies and found a friend to gift our second treat to.
Wishing everyone a very happy holiday break!
Hoping everyone enjoyed our final culinary arts week; looking forward to our dance sessions in the new year!
See everyone back on January 8th.
Please remember your indoor shoes, Expressionwork’s folder and water bottle upon your return.
