Snack & Outdoor Playtime

After we get dressed to go outside (which can take a while during the winter months), we set off for a little adventure. We may play in the yard, or go for a walk in the neighborhood, or visit the park. Somewhere along the way, we'll stop and have a snack! We clean our hands with baby wipes and hand sanitizer first!

Time to go back inside

Once we've had our fun in the great outdoors, we come back inside and play until lunch is ready.

Lunchtime

Everyone washes their hands before sitting down to eat lunch together. Lunch always consists of a variety of foods so that even the pickiest eaters will find something they like. Menus are shared with parents at the beginning of the month to insure that Milhouse isn't eating two spaghetti dinners in one day.
