3. Bakery Workshop

Kids tasting cookies

Students especially enjoyed rolling out cookie dough for Christmas sugar cookies, which they cut into holiday shapes with help from Ms. Merey. Ms. Feney put the cookies into the oven. Once the cookies were baked, Ms. Alida helped the students make icing and use candy sprinkles to decorate the cookies.

Merry X’mas
Another workshop featured a festive backdrop and students could take Polaroid photos to keep as souvenirs. Younger students had a chance to play musical chairs with Ms. Vicky and Ms. Sisi to win a prize.  

Christmas movies in English were played on the giant screen for students to enjoy. At noon, parents joined in the party and had a festive lunch including pizza and snack. THSI Saturday Academy wishes everyone a happy winter holiday and we look forward to seeing you in the spring.
