Before the Easter Holidays Olivia’s school decided to run a new after school club, one which Olivia jumped at and had us signed up to before even leaving the school with the letter on the same day she got it! The club was called ‘Sugar Craft Club’
Olivia has never shown an interest in this before especially as she doesn’t like any kind of icing or toppings, no jam or cream on her cake nothing, nada, zilch. Plain and boring all the way so you can say I was a little bit confused as to why she was so excited to sign up.
The big difference about this class was that parents have to tag along too, yay, a chance to show my complete lack of creativity to other mums at the school I couldn’t wait (please add as much sarcasm as you want to that, it was written with pure sarcasm!) Now it is safe to say I’m not the most crafty, creative of mum’s but if my child wants me to tag along with and cramp her style then who am I to say no to being an embarrassing mum!
As I was off work today I really had no excuse not to go and you know what I actually enjoyed it! Yes really, it was actually quite easy and we all had a good laugh at our lack of creative skills. My sister also tagged along with her daughter and will be taking over my place also when I am in work and we had a good time learning how make little red riding hoods face on a cupcake out of icing. At first I was like woah, I though this was a beginners class?!?! But after the hour was up I was ready to take the main man Cake Boss himself Buddy Valastro oh yes, cake decorator extraordinare, next great baker here I come people!
So what do you think? I was actually quite impressed with myself you know I didn’t think I had it in me,but Olivia’s well what can I say it is just fab isn’t it! Such a great idea for an after school club and a lovely way to enjoy more activities together that we may of not otherwise have done!
What after school clubs do your little ones do? What things do you enjoy to do with your kids and do you have any ideas for things for us to try?
