August 16, 2022: New Concepts for Living day program participants spent the morning at Cooking Group at the YMCA.
Today’s session was about baking. Baking is educational and teaches many different skills. Some of these are math, reading, science, following directions, patience, and problem-solving skills. It also teaches you that it is okay to make a mess as long as you clean it up!
Groups of our individuals attend a weekly session at the YMCA for cooking lessons. It gives them a chance to be a part of their community and learn new skills in order to enhance their independence and well-being.
Everyone had a great time gathering ingredients, mixing them, and watching it turn into their final product – banana bread! The best part of all was tasting it!
