The end of the school year holds endless possibilities. Concerts, recitals, pool parties, class parties etc. Anything you can think of. I had the absolute pleasure of visiting 2 fifth grade classes to teach the kids to ice a cupcake. I have to be honest, I was apprehensive. Ten and eleven year olds can be tough! I thought how will I capture the attention of this class long enough to show them the way to hold the tip bag, squeeze the icing. Kids are restless at the end of the school year, but not these kids. The kids in Mrs. Hunter's and Mrs. Berman's classes were a pure joy. They sat quietly and attentively with an eagerness to learn. With the help of Mrs. Berman I passed out tip bags to each child filled with a different color icing. Each child was given a mini red velvet cupcake to create using their imagination. The cupcakes exceeded my expectations. I was thrilled watching them giggle and share colors and ideas. After the decorating was done the class moms passed around cups of cold iced tea. In celebration of Mrs. Hunter's birthday the classes shared their third cup of tea making them a family. They went around the room and each of the 45 children had an opportunity to share their feelings about their classmates and the year. There was so much love in this room, a fifth grade classroom on the last full day of school. They thanked me for coming and teaching them, but it was me who needed to thank them! I was so elated, I skipped to my car! What a great way to start off the summer!
Here are some of the fabulous creations!
