This week, we started our Valentine's Theme.
There are so many cute ideas out there... I wish we could do them all, but, we have to squeeze in as much as we can in the two week period I've allowed. :)
Monday, we made heart love bugs. We cut the hearts out and had the children glue the hearts down. They added the sticker eyes for personality. Heart stickers were added to the wings. We started the week simple.
Tuesday, We cut out a lacy heart and the kiddos bingo dab the inside. We backed it with construction paper.
Wednesday, we had fun with dots and hand prints. The page was created by Childcareland.com. Shelley's poem was created to use two hand prints. I changed the words to the poem to use only one hand print!
Thursday, we traced each kiddos hand, cut them out from peach paper. The children painted the hearts. Again, backing the heart with construction paper. We had a great time learning to say, "I love you!" with our hands!
Friday, we made the John 3:16 Valentine. I printed up the verse. I found a lacy heart in my February notebook. We had the kiddos paint the heart, we cut it out. We backed the heart with construction paper for durability. We had the kiddos glue the verse in the middle of the heart. We felt it needed just a little something added, so we glitter glued each heart in the "lacy" part of the heart with red and silver glitter glue.
Next week, we will continue with our Valentine Crafts. We may sneak in a double craft on Monday, for Sunday is the Chinese New Year and we may touch that. With the following Monday being President's Day, we may do a President's Craft on Friday after Valentine's Day.
Blessings to a great week!!
