What is Spatulearn?

The unique learning concept behind Spatulearn, LLC is for each youth to understand how a recipe connects to each core content subject. A recipe relates to Social Studies, Math, English, and Science in a multitude of ways. Learning and fun go hand in hand all while providing a life skill that each youth can use throughout their life. Spatulearn is great for birthday parties, church youth nights, boys/girls scouts, individual sessions, after school programs, summer programs, child care facilities, and much more!
