Winter Party Fun

In January, we had a Winter Party in the Children's Room! We started the party with an icebreaker game (pun intended). During the game, kids used snowflake puzzles to find a person with a matching piece. There were fun questions written on the back of the snowflakes that kids used to get to know their partner and introduce him/her to the rest of the group.
