Evergreens in Winter  
What makes an evergreen tree different from other trees? What is a conifer and what shape is it? Let’s explore these special trees while painting with pine needles, making Cheerio garlands, having “Show-N- Tell” with sprigs of evergreens and pine cones brought from home, and learning “Big & Little” and “Prickly & Tickly.” For ages 3-5 years and a parent or guardian.
