COBBS Bakery

This is the field trip that we did for preschool. There are a few others coming up in the next month, and I am so excited! This went over GREAT the COBBS crew had 2 people who were there just to help us. We showed up with our crew of brightly decorated bakers, and they had us all wash our hands and led us to the back. The kids got to mix up scones - this was awesome, goo, and powder coming together to make play dough that they got to eat!
The next step was to pound it out on a cutting board (really this was shaping the scones) again what kid wouldn't love this. The cutter - too funny there were 6 kids hanging off the lever to pull the blade down. The cinnamon scones needed to be dipped in cinnamon, the white chocolate raspberry scones needed to have raspberry's pounded into them, and the chocolate ones were left as is. While the scones were baking the kids ate up some yummy cinnamon buns, and got to learn all about the machines in the bakery. The best part (for me as a mom anyways) was that they sent each child home with 6 scones, and the mom's who came got some yummy carb loaded bread. COBBS did this all for FREE, sent the food home for FREE, and I am soo appreciative. The kids loved it, and it was great for them to try something new.

Wow, I wish I'd done that with my kids when I taught preschool. We did the fire station. Didn't you make the aprons/hats
