This week, we had the pleasure of welcoming Adell Shneer of Art to Eat Cookies back to the school (some of you may remember the spectacular cookies the boys have decorated with her, twice, the cheese blintzes, pad Thai or the soup and linguine that Adell has made with the boys or one of the two sessions she has helped me lead for Food Revolution Day). She loves working with the boys and I knew the plan she had for them this week was pretty special!
We had a smallish crew of boys this week, losing a few to basketball, but there was no less enthusiasm in the room. Again, Adell went over colour theory with the boys just quickly before she let them colour their royal icing…
And before even all the colours had been mixed, some boys were getting started on the decorating portion of the class. Can I just say that a class where 9-11 year old boys spend 45 minutes decorating 3 cookies is pretty awesome? For so many reasons!
And you’ll have noticed some dirty hands in these photos as well. Even Adell left the school with red-stained hands. It looked a little gruesome but as I told the boys, “if you go home and you’re dirty, it means you had a fun day!” Right?
And fun was had indeed – check out some of their cookies:
Thank you Adell for taking the time in what I know is a hectic holiday season to work with the boys – they love working with you and I know we are both inspired when we see how creative they can be. Now, about incorporating cookie decorating into the curriculum then…
