We’ve had a busy and fun week at Elements, since we last saw you. The children have been outdoors, exploring the winter wonderland. They made and flew kites. They built shelters for their toy animals, to keep them from the cold. They “picked” apples that were strewn around the yard, and they began planting seeds that will soon germinate. As always, our activities were as instructive as they were fun. We have been encouraging the children to explore how the outside world evolves in each season, and how our own activities shift, as the seasons change. Bundled up against the cold, they have really been enjoying getting to know the winter. Plus, we made a snack of deviled eggs, which were a big hit.
