Tot School: Weeks 15 & 16 Winter

For weeks 15 & 16 of Tot School our theme was Winter.  I decided to make this a 2 week theme because there were a lot of fun activities I wanted to do with Claire!

Day 1:  Claire got to decorate her little Christmas tree to put in her and Peter's room.  It also snowed on day 1 (couldn't have asked for better timing!) so during Peter's nap we played outside in the snow and built snowmen!  We also read our Snowmen winter books.
Day 2:  We made snowflakes to tape in our windows.  Claire colored some of them while I cut them all out!  Claire did a snowflake painting, and we we made marshmallow snowmen.
Day 3:  We read our stack of winter books and Claire did a bunch of dot paintings and winter coloring pages.

Day 4:  We read Flora & the Penguin and made the cutest cotton ball penguin craft!  We both loved how this one turned out!  Claire also did some penguin coloring pages later in the day.

Day 5 & 6: We read the book Gingerbread baby & made gingerbread cookies! We made the dough and cooked the cookies on day 5 and then on day 6 we decorated them. 

Day 7: We made a few Snowman & Christmas tree paintings.  We also watched Frozen and ate Claire got to eat pretend snowballs (mini marshmallows) for her snack.  These were all of the books we used throughout the week!  
Day 8:  We read snowmen at work and shoveled the driveway for dad! (No pictures, I forgot to use my camera this day :).
