VANDALIA — Here’s some activities at the Vandalia Recreation Center to combat the drab and dreary January:

HHC Lil Sprouts “Parent & Me” Preschool Classes (ages 2-5)

Share your love for learning and cooking with your little one in this fun, interactive healthy cooking class. Classes are theme based and start with an age appropriate nutrition activity to set the stage for learning. Our certified instructor will walk you and your little chef through the steps to create a healthy recipe. After a morning of laughter and learning, your child will look forward to many more family cooking adventures. The class costs $20 and is for ages 2-5. The first class of the series will be on Saturday, January 26 from 10 – 11 a.m. at the Vandalia Senior Center where the children will learn how to create healthy smoothies using fresh fruits and vegetables. Your child will participate in the “Hokey Pokey Blueberry Song” and make fresh Blueberry Smoothies. Contact Tracey Williams for more information at tracey@thyme2getcooking.com.
