The Licking Area Home School Co-op (LAHSC) held their monthly meeting Friday, Dec. 6, at Rock Springs Baptist Church. In keeping with the nippy temps, the teens participated in a “Winter Wonderland” theme. They learned how to prepare a party menu and fashion a creative holiday decoration on a “Poor Man's” budget.
The teens broke into three teams for food preparation. The “Siesta Savvies” prepared Delish Apple and Peanut Butter Nachos with Golden Milk Lattes. In hot pursuit, the “Crackerjacks” stirred up some Red Pepper Hot Chocolate and Churro Almonds. Meanwhile, the “Masterminds” brewed up seasoned Pine Needle Tea, accompanied by Greek Feta Dip with Sliced Cucumbers.
Participant Nate Horton said, “We had a lot of fun making different types of party appetizers, but the Greek Feta Dip was my favorite.”

Topping off the activity, the teens learned how to assemble a striking three feet diameter snowflake using white plastic hangers and zip ties.
The Middles Class (grades 2-6) assembled lap-books covering the conclusion of WWI and the Roaring Twenties. They sampled “Sugarless Sunday Cake” and pimento cream cheese-stuffed celery, dating from a 1920's recipe.
According to student Kaeleb Malikowski, “The Sunday cake was very hard and chewy!”
The Littles Class (ages 3-6) engaged in activities based around the book, “Katy and the Big Snow.” They painted rainbow snowflakes and learned that each snowflake is unique. Creating sticky foam snowmen was a crafty activity.
LAHSC is open to area home school students from ages 3 -18. For more information about the group, contact Heidi Malikowski –
