BRRRR...It's Winter!
This week in the Toddler Enrichment Program we welcomed many new friends and welcomed back some returning toddlers for our TEP WINTER 2016 Session!  We explored the Winter Season and feeling COLD. The toddlers decorated snowman with dot art, snowflakes and cotton balls to create a chilly picture. We read a story about animals that live in cold habitats.  The highlight of the class was playing with ICE!  Our toddlers scooped, dumped, shook, tasted, slurped, dropped and melted the ice....which was super fun.  Tzedakah, Shabbat and snack time were a blast as usual and we ended our day with some music and bubbles. Another fantastic start to a TEP session!
