Dear Abejitas Parents,
Last week, our Abejitas had a lot of fun with our little projects. Our goal this week is to continue playing with our little scientists while they will be exploring and discovering new scents. For example, our Abejitas will be allowed to smell vanilla, mint, cinnamon, and others. At home, mom and dad could help taking every opportunity to offer new things to your children. For example, while you cook your child can smell the food, or during and after the bath, they can smell the shampoo, body lotion.  They could even smell the favorite scents of their family.

Our goal this week is to teach our kids to become more familiar with different communities and appreciate the richness of all cultures. Especially after the new experiences we had in during our international party, it can be a great example of how to enrich the knowledge of our little ones.
