Tot School~ Christmas Style

~ Smiley is currently 23 months old~

Tot School

We're taking a bit of a break from our regular tot school during the month of December. We have so many friends and family staying with us this month that things are just to hectic to take time out of the day to engage in our tot school routine. However, this doesn't mean that there aren't tot school moments throughout the day. I was even able to capture some of them ;)

Learning Toys...

Smiley liked playing with his mailbox and saying the colors of the envelopes as he put them in the mailbox.

He's really interested in puzzles lately. We got out his alphabet puzzle quite a few times over the past two weeks. He really enjoys this. He says the letters as he looks for the correct space for it :)

Smiley got a fun little ball that lights up and had a blast throwing it around the house...

He played with play dough a couple of times...

We painted a Birthday Picture for his Nonno (my dad).

He played with his mega blocks many many times this week :)

He's getting quite good at building towers :)

Playing Wii Tennis with our friens. What a blast!

Christmas/Advent Fun...
Reading a Christmas book with daddy and enjoying the advent wreath :)

Hanging up window decorations with mommy. We even found Mickey Mouse ones :) Smiley is a big time Mickey Mouse fan these days.

St. Nikolaus... We had fun celebrating St. Nikolaus this year.

Smiley got a Little People Nativity scene from Nikolaus :) and we baked Graettima, a Swiss tradition on St. Nikolaus.
and we made a Nikolaus craft...

Smiley playing with his new nativity scene...


  1. What a fun week!I love the light up ball and the towers with mega-blocks. Sunshine has a bunch of those and loves them as well!

  2. I LOVE that Little People Nativity! If I hadn't already covered all my little one's Christmas presents, I would order one right now for her. What a great tower builder he is!

  3. We love mega blocks :) And the more of that little people nativity scene i see, the more i love it!

  4. My little one is a bit wii fan...I have not tried tennis with her yet, but she is a mean bowler and really into Rock band!

  5. What a fun week! Lots of learning! Isn't the nativity scene so much fun! My son has been playing with his the whole month!
