Winter Weather - December 30 - January 3

What a busy week it's been!  We were closed on Wednesday for New Year's Day and have been trying to shift gears back into our routine.  Before we knew it, the week was gone!  Here's some pictures from our week of Winter Weather and Warm Thoughts!

We made an really "hot" sensory tub for the kids this week...a hot chocolate tub!  I don't know who was more excited about it, us or the kids!  We simply tore paper into pieces and folded them to make our "chocolate mix", then added white pompoms for marshmallows and black pompoms for chocolate chips.  We made up some labels, printed them off, and taped them to containers so the kids could pour and mix hot chocolate into their cups.

We had lots of wintry crafts happening this week.  Everything from snowflakes to snowmen to New Year's fireworks.  Little hands stayed busy!
