What is a Loaves of Fun Show?

Loaves of Fun is a ninety-minute fun-filled, hands-on, interactive field trip for children ages 4-11.  This field trip allows teachers to provide an exciting learning experience for their students without worrying about arranging bus transportation or counting heads!  The Loaves of  Fun program was created over forty years ago, and we often have parent volunteers at shows who participated in the program when they were in elementary school. They often tell us that they still remember the fun of making bread.  We strive to fill our program with learning opportunities while the students are having “loaves of fun!”
