We have had a lot of fun focusing on Valentine's day, Love, Friendship, hearts, the colors red and pink, and 1 John 4:7-8.
We made heart shaped decorations with beads and pipe cleaners.
The boys have loved poking these sticks over and over again into the Styrofoam.
We worked on a few Valentine's activities from Get 'Er Done Momma! The boys had a great time putting together these puzzles.
We had a blast with this Valentine day card tray! This past Sunday we were asked to bring a surprise for our children's Sunday school teachers. We were asked to make a homemade card or do something special for them, so we had a blast making cards for them with all of our foam stickers. I allowed the boys to be creative with their cards and then I wrote messages inside of appreciation.
Anything but Perfect. She has some amazing, super cute printables for gifts!! Check it out!
So I got some Hershey's candy bars and wrapped them up and added another foam sticker for a little more color. We usually attend both services at our church as we teach at one service, so my sweet boys have quite a few teachers. :) Gotta share the love!
JP asked to work with our salt trays and use the animal erasers from the sensory bin! He LOVES the salt! Can you tell from this face?
Then one day we made Silly Heart Puppets. I got this awesome idea from My Creative Family.
We also used our heart shaped ice cube trays to make red ice cubes. The boys thought this was so fun! Ice is such a fun thing to work with! I think I may have used too much red food coloring as I got too nervous about the food coloring staining my tile, so this activity ended faster than they would have liked. :)
I found the coolest activity with Hershey kisses, and a paper plate at Reading Confetti called Hunting for Kisses! The boys absolutely LOVED this game! I used our red bingo do-a-dot marker to make a heart shape with numbers inside it and then placed numbers on the bottom of the Hershey kisses. I then hid the red and silver kisses around the house while the boys stayed in one room. Then they ran from room to room to find them all! They loved searching for them! Then when they found them all they matched their numbered kisses to the numbered slots on the heart. We played 3 times the first time I introduced the game and then again twice the next day.
I can see this activity modified for so many fun activities. And the Hershey kisses were a gift to my hubby and I at church on Sunday, so it was frugal too! :)
What have you and yours been up to this week?
