One of the best things about The Learning Zone is our annual cookie exchange, organised by one of our members. This year we had a whole afternoon of festive fun. The English and drama group put on an amusing play with magically growing hamsters – yes seriously. Then we exchanged cookies – some of which had the most amazing wrapping this year. Then we sang a mix of sea shanties and carols rather raucously which was great!
Here are a few cookie pics to make you which you had joined in!
Our basket of rather cheaply and simplistically packaged cookies, we made chewy chocolate-chip cookies, German lebkuchen and Dutch pepernoten :
But got these amazing cookies in return:
And just look at this house – I think some people were just showing off!
We loved these boxes too:
and there were so many other lovely and delicious cookies from so many other generous people, we feel really blessed to be part of such a great group.
