Sensory Play:  Homemade Snow

Today is the first day of winter.  The weather was cool and crisp when we woke up, a very pleasant surprise after the 80 degree weather we have been experiencing!   We live in Florida, experiencing snow is very unlikely, so for the first day of winter we made homemade snow. Homemade snow is great for sensory play!  The …

What a fun day this is when you have kids!  The kids woke up to a toilet papered living room.  I ‘accused’ Alex of doing this when he woke up and he quickly denied it.  I logged onto our computer, with Alex next to me, and opened an email.  It was a photo of our …
