Today’s Teen Tip

Today’s Teen Tip video was created by Family and Consumer Sciences Educator, Katie Schlagheck.  It is called “How to Measure Ingredients” and it can be found here.  Measuring liquid ingredients is much different than measuring dry ingredients, Katie will demonstrate the correct technique for both including the best way to measure flour and brown sugar.

Tuesday Teen Tip of the Day

Today’s Teen Tip video is called “Go Out There and Fail!” and can be found on YouTube using this link.  Sometimes our irrational thoughts about awful outcomes or needs for perfection may keep us from trying new activities. As we can tell ourselves rational statements—of our possible failures as we get better at new activities—those might help free us up simply to do our best.
