The children will engage in super cool Winter activities like making instant snow, ice crystal snowflakes, snowmen in a bottle, and so much more. There will also be activities and lessons on temperature changes and snow sports. We will learn about where it snows, why it snows, and when it snows!

We will be learning Boxing Day which is celebrated the day after Christmas and originated in the United Kingdom. We will be learning about the Jewish tradition of Hanukkah & making dreidels. Christmas traditions will be taught along with crafts and ornament making. We will wrap up the month learning about Kwanzaa, celebrating African American heritage, unity, and culture.

We will read books about the different celebrations and cultures from around the world.

We will be having a Holiday pajama party on December 21st for the students. Children will enjoy warm cocoa, cookies, and making homemade art as gifts for their friends and teachers.

Here at Kids Konnect we believe in awareness and teaching of all different holidays and cultures.
