Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! School age sure did! During the holiday break we enjoyed creating crafts to help get us into the holiday spirit. We kicked off Christmas by building our own Gingerbread house! We enjoyed creating our own designs for the exterior of the house, but of course, getting to eat it was even more fun! Oh, and what's Christmas without beautiful, twinkling lights? We had so much fun getting messy as we created our own Christmas lights using finger paint! Check them out! :)

We also had a snow day here at Holly Tree...with pretend snow, that is. We had a day full of snow as we painted and played with our own homemade snow. We love to create masterpieces with paint, and being able to paint with snow was even more incredible. Here's a link to how to create your own snow paint :)

Being able to play with snow inside without it melting away was so much fun! Here's a link to how to create your own "melt-free" snow! :)

Again, we all hope you had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We are so excited to see what the new year has in store for Holly Tree! We're dreaming big and reaching for the stars!
