Summer Activities for Toddlers

Found this on a yahoogroup and thought you might be interested.

----------------------------------------------------------

KIDSAHOYSHOP.COM'S SUMMER 2008 CREATIVE PROGRAMS:

ART LAB (Tuesdays 4-6yrs 10-12pm / 6-8yrs: 1-3pm)
Art and science are key elements for understanding the world around us and the two are intimately related. Learn by hands-on participation: watch it, find it, hold it, build it. Once students internalize science through hands-on exploration, the concepts will resonate through out their everyday lives. Study the science of a sunset, and then do a pastel of the sunset. Look at a Leonardo da Vinci invention, and then draw your own similar invention idea. The idea is to combine science facts and art projects to delight the children. Geared to the visual or kinesthetic learners. Guaranteed fun!

Try it out mommies! I personally like to enroll Sandy in a ballet class or ice skating next year. How exciting it would be to see her prancing around in tights or gliding on ice wearing her cute skate shoes.
