The beehives were in charge of our last Joint activity (w/ the YM) and they decided on a skills night.
We had three different classes, Laundry, Money, and Cooking.
When they arrived we divided them into three groups by having them choose a Hershey Kiss off of a platter. On the bottom of the kiss was a colored dot to show which group they would be in.
I used the garage sale dots you can find in the office section of most grocery stores.
The classes lasted 15min each w/ 5 min for rotation.
In this class they learned the importance of budgeting and played a little Price Is Right.
In our cooking class each rotation made something different. The first rotation made no bake cookies, the second rotation made corn bread & honey butter, and the third made chili.
(If you would like the recipes we used feel free to email me and I would be happy to share)
For this class I chose recipes that were fairly basic and simple to make.
In this class they learned to sort their laundry, which settings you use to wash, basic ironing and sewing on a button. They had a relay where they had to sort clothes, iron a tea towel, & sew a button on a piece of cloth.
After they had rotated to all classes we got together to enjoy our chili, cornbread & honey butter, and our no bake cookies.
I think everyone had a good time and hopefully learned something new.
