The children met today's snowfall with such excitement! We went sledding on Mt. Suzuki!
This was such a great activity for encouraging cooperation among the children! The worked together to be successful in every aspect of this activity - carrying the sleds from the play yard to the hill, propelling themselves down the hill in the sled, and carrying the sled up to the top again.
The children were full of smiles! The joy in this activity was evident throughout and it was exciting for many to tell us that this was the first time they had gone sledding!
This activity was also great exercise. The children were responsible for carrying their sleds back to the top of the hill after sledding down. This was great for gross motor development (and keeping warm in the chilly weather).
