Santa's Socks 2020


Four years ago we added Santa's Socks to our Discovery Center.  I remember searching everywhere for colorful socks for this activity.  Now you can easily do this at home because Christmas socks are not only everywhere but cheap (preschool teachers like things that are cheap or free).  Check out your local store where things are a dollar.  Fill a basket and add clothespins.  More info and the 'how to':

A Sweet Christmas

A sweet idea to keep the kiddos busy during the holidays! 

We love messy tubs (often called 'sensory') at MCP. We use rice throughout the school year and at the holidays add a bit of peppermint extract.  Plastic candies can be found at your local dollar stores, craft store or on-line shopping site.

Not interested in rice all over the kitchen floor?  Use white shredded crinkle gift bag paper for an easier clean up. 

After the holidays you can add polar animals!
