Cookies and Cursive Handwriting Summer Camp

Given this daily blog is all about encouraging letter writing, today’s blog post on Cookies and Cursive Handwriting Summer Camp is perfect!

The Denver Post carried an article last week on a Denver Mom wanting cursive back in schools. In reading the article we learn she is not only is talking about it but doing something about it.  Fast forward in the article and we learn – “Bowland is hosting a cursive summer camp in June to teach young kids the joys of cursive writing.”

“… So she created “Cookies and Cursive, Mindful and Artistic Handwriting for the 21st Century Child,” a course he hopes to use in after-school classes across the metro area.

Bowland — who describes herself as a “serial entrepreneur by trade” — says the course introduces kids to American cursive handwriting through the language of baking. Kids learn how to read cursive and properly form letters, write words, sentences and paragraphs in cursive through visuals, activities and personalized projects.” …  

“We want children to be able to write thank you notes to their grandparents,” she said. “That is something both will treasure.”
