The little ones at the Early Childhood Education Center on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community celebrated Winter Wonderland on December 16.

Santa visited the classrooms and the children played outside in the “snow.” A pile of snow was specially brought in for the celebration.

The event, which also included holiday caroling and a wreath-making contest, lasted about three hours.
