Christmas Fun Week

I guess I forgot to hit the “Publish” key a week ago!  Our Christmas Fun Week happened the week before our 2 week Christmas break.

Christmas Fun Week was filled with, well, fun.  We’ve done something different every day.

Science - Growing borax crystals

The art museum was one day with a scavenger hunt with a French theme that had us finding different works of art, sketching,and  jumping into the air in different poses.

The next day was the Gardens, where we learned about Christmas traditions from around the world.

The Public Museum had a Christmas Wurlitzer organ story time and a planetarium show about the winter skies and the Bethlehem Star.

Friday was suppose to be the Nutcracker Ballet.  Alas, we got a foot of snow and it was cancelled, however much fun was had playing in said snow, and we now have a good 3 feet on the ground!

Interspersed with all these field trips has been much Christmas making, baking, and decorating.
