This Week’s Preschool Activities

Last year, we didn’t have much of a winter, so this fall, I started praying for a cold winter with snow.  I know I am crazy, but as much as I enjoyed last winter (which believe I totally did), I was ready for some Minnesnowta fun.  And our family has taken advantage of the cold and the snow. 

Even though I was looking forward to a real MN winter doesn’t mean you were.  Some of you may be cursing me right now!  And because of that, I would like to give you some great indoor activities you can take your energetic little ones to because believe me, even though I wanted winter, I also have crazy little ones who run around the house playing monster and “FIGHT!”  (whatever that might entail!)
