Let's Make Some Valentines!

Happy Friday readers!

Have y'all had a good week?

Mine was great..I am finally getting my groove back and am over the New Year (i.e. end of Christmas vacation) slump!

This weekend, I am excited for a little project:  Making Valentine's for all the little cuties in my class!

I've been searching Pinterest like a nut for ideas and thought I'd share some of the favorites I've found:

Isn't this ADORABLE?
I don't know if it's in the budget to buy $18 shovels, but I might have to make one of these for Bryce!

I have a feeling making all those little baggies would get frustrating, BUT, I absolutely LOVE this LOVEbug idea!

These butterflies would be adorable for the girls in my class!

And this would be perfect for the boys...
I WHEELIE like you!  SO clever!

This could be a good contender for snack time on V-Day!

I like this idea!
I would probably put "Give Me 5, Valentine!" on it!

Again, this isn't in the budget, but I may have to put it together for the B man!
"I've got a CRUSH on you!"

And last, but not least, this is what I've decided on:

I'm excited to look for some cute Valentine's pencils at the Dollar Store this weekend!

I also think I am going to have the kids make these for their parents this week!

My kids have been all about Valentine's Day!  We have been doing all sorts of fun activities:

My students made these lovebugs in a center and then wrote about them!

I hung hearts from the ceiling.
Wouldn't it be nice if hearts really did fall from the sky?

We made these heart men for the hallway!
Again, wouldn't it be nice if hearts really grew on trees?

The kids love "reading" this Valentine's poem!
We've also done some fun shared writing activities where we've changed the third verse so the poem says silly things like "Skunks are smelly, And so are you!"

Are any of you mamas doing any cute Valentine's things with your kiddos?

Are you a fan of Valentine's Day!

Still need to brainstorm what special thing I'm going to do for Bryce this year.  Having a hard time thinking of something to top my "52 Things I Love About You" from last year!  Any good ideas?

Have a great weekend!!!
