This has been a fun topic to cover. I went back and added in pictures and post links for the various snack-tivities we have done to previous posts, as well as the freezer experiment. Check out our indoor snowman. The toddler played along with us one day and colored some mittens. This week we ‘wrapped’ […]

We spent the end of December and a good part of January so far working on seasonal topics, including talking about all things Polar. Read up on previous activities HERE.
