Well, I'm getting a little late start here for the month, eh?? Oh well!
It finally got cold here so it's a good time to do our short December themes of "Snow" and "Penguins"
We never get snow here except literally once every 5-10 years and its a scattering of icy flakes, but we can pretend!! So for this month, we will try to get some of these activities done:
Instant snow in the sensory box. The boys LOVED playing with instant snow last year, I think we used it all up but I'll get my hands on some.Even yoda wasn't safe from the snow.

We are only doing a few weeks of "real" school during December so we can enjoy the holiday break. We don't celebrate Christmas, but our public school friends are off for their break and we'd like to spend some time with them.
So happy crafting, schooling and stay warm!
