December will be filled with the colors of the season and activities to impress those who we love most. We will be hoping for some snowy weather to coordinate with our wintery crafts we have planned for this month.
There will be snowflake making , reindeer made with clay and sticks and for our epicureans, we will be learning how to read a classic sugar cookie recipe and creating our very own gingerbread house! The class will also be stirring up some homemade hot chocolate to be enjoyed after our chilly wintery afternoons.
Gift collages, holiday games with numbers, nutcracker scenes and magic glitter dough will also be some of the other activities we will have for the month of December.
For our last week we will be organizing a Bubblegum Lab for all of our inquisitive minds curious to see which brands blow the biggest bubble and which ones keep their flavor the longest!
