Baby, it’s cold outside

Brrrrr! Winter has officially arrived and we are taking this opportunity to explore some fun winter-themed activities at Tudorka Tots!

At Campus Dr., preschoolers are starting to notice the weather changing and that it’s getting colder. They are learning about places that snow and even made snowflakes yesterday! The toddlers painted their snowflakes, while the preschoolers cut out their own.

Preschoolers also decorated igloos and read the story, “Ice is Nice” by Bonnie Worth.

Here are some photos:

Meanwhile, did you know Mountain Blvd. had a snow day yesterday? Yep, even in California!

Ms. Crystal helped students make instant snow. They made igloos and snow people, and read the book, “The Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats to connect the activity with the changing weather.

Here is the “recipe” for the instant snow, too. (You’ll never guess what the secret ingredient is…)

And here are some photos:
