The Lunar New Year is approaching. In order to let the children of the family house of Baoliang Bureau feel the warmth of the family and the atmosphere of the New Year, the bureau recently (19th) brought the children of the same house through the "cooking at home" activity to the market to buy rice and cook rice. It is hoped that the children of the family house can not only feel personally through the activities, but also contact the society.
The children in the family house can cook a variety of New Year's dishes in just over an hour. Abalone, stir-fried sardines and vegetarian wings have no difficulty. During this period, they also understand the cooperation of graders. Liang Jieyi, director of the Children's Group of the Social Service of Baoliang Bureau, said, The activity lasts for more than 20 years. I mainly hope that the children in the house can become independent and train their communication skills. Cooking in person can make them understand that the process of food preparation is not easy. I hope they can cherish it.
