Summer school has began at Prairie Learning Center! Some of our students are using the time to catch up on credits they have missed. Some of our students are learning life skills such as cooking and crafts.
Today in Art class they worked on String Art. Coming up soon will be rock painting!! It will be way cooler than it sounds.
Yesterday we found a package of peanut butter cookie dough mix. Use your imagination! What should we make with it!? Stop back in tomorrow to see what we made with it!
Keep checking back to see what we are creating! I will be updating frequently!!
Help us have a great summer learning new life skills. We are hoping to raise $2000 for supplies and food.
Cheeseburger Ramen Hotdish
Learning how to stretch a dollar. Ramen noodles are cheap and hamburger can be too. Mix them together with some cheese! You have a filling meal for a family for under $8!
Learning to improvise! We had plans to use canned biscuits to make pepperoni pizzas. However the kitchen didn't have any of our ingredient except the cheese. They did have leftover taco meat and some bun dough. So we invented taco pizza! It was delicious!
On Wednesday we had Thanksgiving for lunch! The cooks had some leftover turkey that they let us use! So today we created Leftover Turkey Quesadillas! Very tasty!
Snap, Crackle, POP!!!
Who doesn't love Scotcharoos and Krispy Treats! The boys learned how to make these in the microwave today. The rest of the school loves when we make treats and share!
2 different chocolate chip cookie recipes, the top is a basic recipe and the bottom has cheesecake pudding in it.
Both turned out very wonderful, but who doesn't like warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies!
The winner by taste test of the PLC residents and staff was the bottom cookies with the pudding!
Students learned the art of making scrambled eggs. Nobody ended up with egg in their face!
Normal box mix vs. box mix plus Dt. Coke! Boys decided mixing the cake according to directions is better than mixed with Dt. Coke.

This student learned how to gently tap in nails straight! He also learned how to create the string art design.
Heart String Art
