As usual, let’s celebrate this holiday through pictures!
I read this book to my 2-3 year olds. It was the perfect
length and also allowed the kids to participate by guessing what
was underneath the flap. It was fun!
I read this book to my older kids because it is a little bit longer.
Filled with all of the cutesy "kitty" love stuff, this book
is an excellentread to describe love to kids.
Although not about Valentine's Day, I still used this book for Pajama Time.
I especially like this book because all of the animal are made from hearts!
We had a great time counting how many it took to create each animal.
Another great Valentine's story told in rhyme to "Twas the Night Before Christmas."
Although I didn't use this book this year, it always makes my list because it
is a quick, upbeat read that the kids like to hear.
|I found these here. I absolutely love them!|
I think they would be great for Valentine's to hand out.
How cute is this? Though I seriously considered doing
this for my crafts, I dediced to go a different route. Find this craft here.
Another cute craft I found online. Very simple!
Trace your child's hand.
Fold down the middle and ring finger.
Then glue to a heart!
A simple way to say "I love you" in American Sign Language.
I played HEART bingo with my 4-6 year olds. This is great
to work on larger numbers with kids as well as give a little
incentive to be an active listener! We had so much fun with this one!
Ok, I know I said this would be all in pictures, but, I changed my mind. Every holiday, I like to give my kiddos goody bags. I try to make them fun and different for each holiday. I also try VERY hard to make them age-appropriate. Though buying things for my babies can be difficult, its a really fun challenge! This year in their goody bags were crayons, chocolates, strawberry chewy hearts, suckers, pencils, kazoos, stickers, and candy hearts. Each kid also got a heart-shaped crayon I found on Pinterest!
