Welp, my idea of taking the kids outside and playing Jingle Bells in the dead of winter for our neighbors last group class before the holiday break was...interesting. Having piping hot apple cider WOULD have helped if I had remembered to actually turn it on after getting it all ready on the stove.
Also, word to the wise: violins do NOT like going from warm to freezing. Every single violin went impossibly out of tune. Disaster. But still fun!
And thanks to Mim for getting the apple cider hot for our return. We were absolutely frozen. Will be tweaking this activity in the future!
