We honor this day which celebrates St. Valentine and friendship in a very simple way. Many children made or decorated cards at home for their classmates. We set up our own mail delivery system in the classroom, with photos to help find the right recipient.
The children explored a new coloring medium, oil pastels. They produce bright colors but can be a little messy. You can use the point for coloring small areas, or the flat side for filling larger areas with color.
At the collage table children made an extra Valentine card. There was color paper, fancy scissors, heart-shaped hole punches, and stickers for decoration. Plenty of fine-motor work.
Most cards made today went home for Mom ♥
Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day!
