What's Cooking?: Let Them Eat Cupcake!

Looking at the baking books that are on the scene, cupcakes have continued to grow in popularity.  There is even a cupcake competition on Food Network.  The creativity and artistry involved in designing these “little cakes” are just beautiful.  The delicate decorations and sculpting amaze me as I view the intricate and complex workmanship…and they taste good too!

Upcoming Crafts for School-aged Kids

Just a quick reminder that next week we have two upcoming crafts for children who are in their "upper" elementary years.  If you're wondering how to keep your kids busy next week, these programs may fit the bill!!!

On Tuesday, April 10, 2012 we have a Knight's Armor Craft program from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.  Kids will have the opportunity to assemble and decorate foam-sheet armor.  Foam sheets are very durable and easy to work with.  Up to 12 children in grades 4-6 may register for this craft.

On Wednesday, April 11, 2012 we have a Duct Tape Wallet workshop from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.  We will have several colors of duct tape on hand, and children will create their very own wallet complete with both a billfold and a seperate section to hold gift cards, photo ID's, etc.  These wallets make great gifts, too.  This program is appropriate for up to 6 children in grades 5 and 6.

Please call Youth Services at 845-634-4997, extension 121 to register your child(ren).
