Saint Nicholas to Santa Claus: The Transformation over Time
It’s getting to be that time of year again! With all the holly and jolly and 2 inch think toy catalogs, it is hard for our little ones to really remember that it’s about giving. Not getting! What better way to remind them than to learn about the man behind the red suit? Here is a little mini unit fun for you and your little ones.
Our Gluten Free Dairy Free Dutch Baby Pancake Recipe
