Monday we got to plant in the garden in the morning. After coming in and getting introduced to the kitchen we began making out lunch for the day. After lunch we went outside and played “Johnny can I cross your bridge” and then learned about MyPlate. In the afternoon we made lunches for our field trip Tuesday, and played a few more games.
Tuesday we headed out to Braeutigam Orchards. We took a tour of the farm, played with the chickens and farm cats, picked peaches & blackberries, and also got to try some of the farms products. After the farm, we headed to a park to cool down and enjoy our lunch. We finished the afternoon by making some caramel corn and playing some games while waiting to be picked up.
Wednesday we started off our day in the garden with a guest speaker. Michael from Paraquad came out to talk to us about disability awareness. The kids got to use some adaptive utensils for the kitchen, got to water the garden while “visually impaired”, and got to try out how people in a wheelchair get around. We cooked a delicious lunch of tacos and got to enjoy the rest of the day cooking.
Thursday we started in the garden and harvested some peppers. We cooked empanadas for lunch, and the kids loved them so much, we ate them all! We then went on a scavenger hunt, and had a special surprise for snack for all the hard work!
