I'm going to start with an activity that had everyone and I do mean everyone thinking I had lost my mind! One of our letter this week is "H" and of course all the guys in my class loved telling me that "hammer" starts with "H". Hmmmmm . . . . ok, let's hammer!?!?!?! We made hammered hearts!
Then, I gave the child a hammer (and moved my fingers)!
WOW! This was fun! AND loud!
We worked several days on our BIG Valentine surprise for our parents. First we started off by painting a large piece of white construction paper with different colors. Now, that doesn't sound very fun does it? Well, it does when you paint it with "super fun" paint brushes . . . .
OOH! While our hearts were drying we wrote a little message to our parents. Then, glue on our giant hearts.
But of course we did not stop here. We took everyone picture holding their art work.
HOLD ON A MINUTE! We're not done yet . . . . now we need a frame for this amazing photo. My sweet friend and former co-worker, Martha, messaged me the other day on Facebook (yes, I'm on Facebook!) and asked me if I wanted some old silk roses. WOW, she knows me ssssoooo well! She arrived at school with the BIGGEST bag of silk roses I have ever seen! I realized these would make our Valentine frames perfect.
I ripped the petals off faster than you could say "Valentines" and we were set!
Wouldn't you love to receive this
(with your child's picture in it)
for Valentine's day?
Finally, no valentine's week is complete without our wonderful "Dancing Heart" girl and "Dancing Heart" boy. I've been doing these for several years now and they are always a hit.
Can you see her hair bow?
The hair on this little fellow looks just
like the guy who made him!
Okay, I guess I better head off and do something productive in my house (not really, I'm probably just going to go and scrapbook some more wedding photos!). I hope you try one or more of our ideas and if you do, please let me know how they turned out. Thanks for stopping by!
