Ok so I wasn’t sure about a Publix field trip, since we “field trip” to the grocery store once a week, but this was a real one. It included other homeschoolers, props, snacks, and information a plenty.
Caitlyn was on board until they handed out the hair nets, and then she was ready to leave. I convinced her to stay, and she was rewarded by a stop at the bakery.
They started by demonstrating how to decorate cakes, went over the baked breads, and then all the kiddos got to sample a cookie. Caitlyn picked a purple sprinkled sugar cookie and it was her favorite part of the field trip.
They walked us through each of the departments and interacted amazingly well with the kids.
Caitlyn enjoyed being with the other kids once she got brave enough to leave my side (unfortunately she didn’t know anyone when we got there). She said her least favorite part was the freezer in the back that felt like “10,000 ice cubes on me”.
They ended the tour by letting all the kids check out an item or two of their choice. Caitlyn loved this too!
All in all the field trip was a hit.
