We enjoy spending time outdoors, as the weather gets colder we try as much as we can to get those last days of warm sunshine.
We made parfaits in cooking class. Clients enjoyed tailoring their parfaits to their taste buds. Some times we just need a little pick me up, these parfaits made with Greek yogurt, low fat angel food cake, and fruit was just what the donkey.. err I mean doctor order. ;)
Today we made slime, fluffy slime. Clients enjoyed getting a little messy. This sensory activity is something that can be enjoyed even after program; as each client was able to take some fluffy slime home with them.
Learning to appreciate the beauty of the outdoors is something clients and staff alike strive towards. Clients work towards a healthier lifestyle, getting light exercise, and also work on social skills as they converse with each other.
Clients always enjoy cooking class. Staff enjoyed showing clients that they can make a packet of noodles more then just pasta. We jazzed ours up with onions, tomatoes, chicken, roast beef, spinach and even a little egg. “I can do this at home.” and “It’s like we’re eating Chinese food.” were just a few comments flying around the room.
Scavenger hunts help our clients in so many ways. Not only does it help build relationships with the other clients, when they are teamed with. It also encourages socialization with others as they request help to locate the items on the list.
Our clients look forward to our money management days, they get to explore the community and learn how to make smart money moves.
