Classes Offered

Competent Cooking

Statistics show that one in 3 teens going into college  can't boil an egg and 1 in 5 can't make toast. YES, TOAST. This class makes sure that kid isn't yours. We teach the  very basics of real-world survival in the kitchen to include food prep,  preparing simple meals, cleaning up & food storage. Trust me, if you have  a teen who thinks that ramen is one of the food groups, that coffee comes from  Starbucks or that butter and margarine are the same thing they need this  class. Guys & gals welcome. Includes all supplies, snacks, dose of  confidence and parent tips. Classes leveled in elementary, middle & high school 

Kitchen Moxie

Nothin’ better than a guy or gal who knows their way around  the kitchen, but we’re guessing they didn’t get that way by accident! We want  to start kids early by going over safety, proper use and maintenance of just  about everything you'd find & use in the kitchen: major appliances, small  electronics, common tools, uncommon tools, etc. The utensil drawer won't have  NOTHIN' on kids who have Kitchen Moxie! Includes snack, domestic rebellious  influence, take-away and parent tips. Classes leveled in elementary, middle & high school.

Grease Lightning 101

Being able to drive is a huge responsibility as well as a privledge for most high school kids. Holding these young drivers accountable for being able to maintain that vehicle is key to them appreciating as well as taking great care of it. With the help of Master Mechanics at Genuine Automotive in midtown Fort Collins, we will teach these road warriors how to refill the windshield wiper fluid, check tire pressure and add air, jumper cable basics, how to check and add oil and the importance of it all! Class is limited to 4 at a time so that students can learn these new skills on their vehicle of choice. 16 and up.

Soapbox Shopper

While online shopping and ordering groceries to be picked up without having to get out of the car is indeed handy for us busy parents, it’s robbing our children of very basic shopping skills that give them confidence and self-reliance as young adults. We’ll make a meal plan for a week, work with a budget, go over some money saving tricks like coupons/BOGO/sales, teach understanding how items are priced, learn multiple-use pantry staples and their uses, tips on how to arrange a pantry and cabinets and more. Your kiddo will WOW you at the store after Soapbox Shopper! Middle & high school. 

Belle of the Hall

"Classy is when a gal has everything to flaunt but chooses not to show it." Despite our current culture's call to show it all, we want our young ladies to be belles of the hall. Designed to put our gals on the right path and control the message their appearance and behaviors present, we go through school hallway etiquette, dressing for success, personal hygiene, what you wear and what it says, school/home balance, social skills & most of all- why all of that matters. Think MTV’s Pink meets Audrey Hepburn meets Sandy from Grease. Includes snack, take-away, & parent tips. Middle & High school (and college!).

Suave Sparkplug

Chivalry is NOT dead.. if it is- then THIS is the class to revive it. We believe in charm & propriety, and think that nothing is more impressive than a guy who gets it and exhibits that everywhere he goes. We’ll go old school with our young guys on grooming & appearance, etiquette, how to tie a necktie, how to act on a date, and most of all: why it matters. We’ll raise the standard and watch them rise to the occasion in how they speak to one another, how they take care of themselves, and how they contribute to the world around them as Suave Sparkplugs. Includes: snack, take-away, supplies and parent tips. Middle & high school (and college!).

 

... and more!

Manners Magnate

Modern day manners & etiquette with a twist of nostalgia & rebellion. We will go through everything from why manners matter to how to introduce yourself, old school manners, writing thank you notes, dinner table etiquette and more! Knowing how to shake a hand, dress for meals, hold the door and introduce yourself to a stranger comes with some serious self-respect. Buckle up and prepare to knock your parent’s socks off! Includes snack, take away and tips for parents. Elementary, middle & high school. 

Laundry Love

We know, we know- NOBODY loves laundry... but we think that if kids learn how to do it (and do it right!) at a young age, a lifetime of lookin’ good won’t be such a daunting task. We put a fun spin (get it? SPIN?) on a boring job and learn the basics of how to read labels, sorting, stain removal, detergents, what gets hand washed and what does/doesn't go in the dryer. Basic ironing how to’s will also be covered. Includes: snack, supplies, domestic rebel influence and parent tips. Middle & high school (and college!).

Making Space Sparkle

 Keeping space clean won’t require nagging or bribing after this class- The Savvy Sparkplug is here to handle it! We are fearless enthusiasts of cleaning products and equipment, here to bring out the renegade independent spirit in kids as they learn that they are capable and can totally DO this stuff. We’re going to learn about typical household cleaning products and what each one is for (and how to use them!) as well as play with and practice the right way to use that elusive household cleaning EQUIPMENT. (Plunger anyone? Where’s the vacuum?) Having self-confidence in taking care of their space BEFORE they leave home is HUGE... and it starts here. Includes: supplies, snack and parent tips. Elementary, middle & high School.
