December always seems to come and go before we know it!
We spent the month interacting with several different red and green works. A popular one was a tin slot box the infants put thin red and green blocks into. They also worked with red, green, and white blocks that were stacked over and over again.
The infants lent their feet to help create a delightful painting of a snowman and a tree for a one of a kind holiday gift. Some of our friends were very interested in the process while others did not like getting their feet tickled by the paint brush, but smiled once they saw their footprints on the canvas! We hope you enjoyed the snowy gift as much as we enjoyed making it for you.
We also welcomed Makenna to our room. She adds more smiles and laughter to Ambarino each day! We also said see you soon to Emerson as she moved into her new toddler classroom right before we went on winter break. Even though it is always bittersweet to see our oldest friends move on, we know we will still see them when they are out on the toddler playground.
In January, we will spend time working with containers we can put objects into and open and close. We will also talk about big and small objects.
We hope you enjoyed the holidays with family and friends! Happy New Year!
