To watch the renewal of nature at home, have your child put three toothpicks in an onion and suspend the onion over a small glass of water so that only the bottom of the onion is in the water. Remind the child to check it every day so that it has enough water. Put the glass in a sunny window. Soon the onion will send up leaves.
To make a simple paper ct you will need:
Fold one piece of paper in half. The fold will form the center of the design, so you will be drawing only half the picture.
Draw your design using the fold as the center. Keep the design simple. Try a tree, a face, or a snowflake.
Carefully cut out the design with scissors.
Open the paper and press the design flat
Cover the back of the design with glue or rubber cement
Place the design on the center of your other piece of paper. If you use tissue paper for the second piece, light will come through and you can hang it in the window for decoration.

"The flexibility the program affords us is outstanding. With other child care options, I always felt I was accommodating their schedule instead of my own."
