During Arctic week we explored this colder region and what you might find there! We talked a lot about the cold, and how people and animals who live in cold areas stay warm....for that matter, how do we stay warm? Below are some highlights of the week.
Our "Around the World" winter party this year incorporated the theme of "It's a Small World" to showcase what preschoolers were learning about the world around them. The party showcased much of their recent work, as well as the catering finesse of our culinary students - who made these gingerbread cookies, complete with all 20 preschoolers name labeled and even their hair color! Our party planners, Taylor, Yuliya, and Jessica really went all out bringing this theme to life. I hope you enjoyed it!
Our "It's a Small World" cruise ship sailed down our hallway below their floating winter wishes lantern, alongside a display showcasing all of their family "picture houses" that shared their winter family traditions, and across from 4 special Small World scenes from Mexico, Japan, Hawaii, and Africa.
Activities shown above: Making cocoa mix and decorating cocoa jar, blind snowball scoop game, around the world scavenger hunt (very impressed at kids finding items!), and winter tossing game. Below: Some of our fun families in front of the "castle."
