Two words: summer fever.
Many Idaho residents are familiar with the longing for hot days filled with the smell of freshly-cut grass, melting popsicles, and walking outside without layers of sweaters and coats weighing them down.
They also have the sunny, long hours of the day to look forward to. However, for some, the expanse of hours can be difficult to fill.
This upcoming summer, CEWT is offering a multitude of classes from baking cinnamon rolls to a fireworks safety course to help fill up those long days and teach you a useful skill or two!
Check out ten of our highlighted classes below!
1. Cinnamon Roll Making: Who doesn’t love a steaming cinnamon roll doused in melted icing? This new class will teach students how to bake these plump, gooey, sweet treats from scratch so they’ll know how to bake them for future birthdays, parties, hikes, or just for fun!
2. Frankenstuffies: Children love mixing and matching things together, so why not have them create a one-of-a-kind stuffed animal? Students will detach and reassemble stuffed animal limbs, heads, and tails to sculpt an imaginative creature that they get to take home.
