Our Favorite Recipes

Family-Focused
Dirt Cups
From Samatha Postle, M.S., CCC-SLP, TSSLD & Senior Advisor, The Makeshift Movement

As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I work with students with developmental disabilities across the age range of 3–21. During this pandemic, one thing parents have asked for is ways to keep their children learning, active, and engaged while staying inside. When looking for indoor activities that fits these criteria, immediately cooking comes to mind. I discovered this website called Accessible Chef, which provides visual recipes for children with disabilities, but really, everyone can benefit from visual support! 

Cooking is a great way for children to be hands-on in the kitchen! It is a natural reinforcer and very motivating for kids, (you get to eat yummy food!), and it is great for problem solving, sequencing, and language development. One recipe that I have made with my students is dirt cups! Kids love it, and it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients! I hope you enjoy it!

Good News in the Neighborhood

Through his online concerts, Oceanside resident, Jon Rizzo, has raised more than $10,000 for local first responders! How’s he doing it? His weekly show, Sunday Night Live, is open to all on Facebook or Instagram. Audience members can choose to send in donations, which Jon then uses to: 

  • Buy gift cards from Oceanside bars and restaurants and then donates them to hospital workers and first responders to ensure they get hot meals.
  • Give directly to hospitals so they can use the money for much needed PPE.
