What’s in the Box? Winter Wonderland

Doesn’t it seem like November has just flown by? I can’t believe we’re headed towards Thanksgiving and the December holidays. My December Mother Goose Time theme box arrived yesterday so I let’s take a look at What’s in the Box? Winter Wonderland.

What's in the Box? Winter Wonderland Mother Goose Time Preschool Curriculum

I always love the winter themes! There are so many fun topics that go along with the cold weather, winter, and the artic.

In the Winter Wonderland theme your children will pretend to sled with the penguins, run with the caribou and build an igloo. They will help rescue a baby polar bear from an iceberg and imagine skiing down a mountain. Experiment with melting ice and explore the arctic in this sparkling, snowy theme.
