Summer Workshops with Smart Raspberry

On Tuesday 30th July, KidsOut arranged for 11 children to attend an “Afternoon Tea” Summer 1themed cookery workshop with our partners at Smart Raspberry. The children attending had the opportunity to make sweet treats to take home for the summer holidays.

Over the two hour workshop, the children followed the instructor step-by-step, putting their new skills to the test to make homemade quiche and tiffin.

One child said: “my favourite part was banging the biscuits!” and another asked: “can we do this again?!”

One member of the KidsOut team who assisted at the workshop told us how lovely it wasSummer 2 to see the children all working together to make the goods. In particular, it was rewarding to see a brother and sister support each other to make their food and build a happy relationship to distract from negative memories they share together.

Following the workshop, one mother was amazed at her children’s efforts, asking “did they really make those themselves?!”

Thank you again to our partners at Smart Raspberry for their continued support. The children thoroughly enjoy the workshops and we look forward to seeing what they create at the next workshop!
